|Summary:||FreeBSD Security Advisory (FreeBSD-SA-06:15.ypserv.asc)|
|Description:||The remote host is missing an update to the system|
as announced in the referenced advisory FreeBSD-SA-06:15.ypserv.asc
The ypserv(8) utility is a server which distributes NIS databases to client
systems within an NIS domain.
There are two documented methods of restricting access to NIS maps through
ypserv(8): through the use of the /var/yp/securenets file, and through the
/etc/hosts.allow file. While both mechanisms are implemented in the server,
a change in the build process caused the securenets access restrictions
to be inadvertantly disabled.
Upgrade your system to the appropriate stable release
or security branch dated after the correction date
