Fix Recommendation

Configure the external DNS server's firewall policy, or the network firewall, to block queries from internal hosts.

Check Contents

Consult with the System Administrator to review the external Windows 2008 DNS Server's HBSS firewall policy.

The inbound TCP and UDP ports 53 rule should be configured to only restrict IP addresses from the internal network.

If the HBSS firewall policy is not configured with the restriction, consult with the network firewall administrator to confirm the restriction on the network firewall.

If neither the DNS server's HBSS firewall policy nor the network firewall is configured to block internal hosts from querying the external DNS server, this is a finding.
