Date:  Aug 15 2008
Impact:   Modification of system information
Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in VitalQIP. A remote user can spoof the system.

The domain name system (DNS) service does not use sufficiently random UDP sockets to process queries.

This may cause traffic to be redirected to arbitrary IP addresses specified by the remote user.
