Multiple vendor socket entropy DNS spoofing

dns-socket-entropy-spoofing (43334) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Multiple vendor DNS protocol implementations could allow a remote attacker to spoof DNS traffic. The DNS client service fails to provide an adequate amount of entropy when performing DNS queries. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to spoof DNS traffic against certain recursive resolvers, which could allow the attacker to obtain sensitive information and redirect Internet traffic to any server of the attacker's choosing.
