    I am getting this WARNING.

    Code:
    WARNING: Name servers software versions are exposed:
     "PowerDNSAuthoritativeServer3.4.10(jenkins@autotest.powerdns.combuilt20170306160718root@rpmbuild-64-centos-7.dev.cpanel.net)"
    Exposing name server's versions may be risky, when a new vulnerability is found your name servers may be automatically exploited by script kiddies until you patch the system.
    

    One or more nameservers responded to version queries. This can be considered a breach of security. If a malicious person or program had access to a version-specific exploit for your DNS server, displaying the version info openly will make their attack much easier. This should be removed or obscured. The nameservers that responded to version queries are:

    Code:
    IP responded with "PowerDNS" "Authoritative" "Server" "3.4.10" "(jenkins@autotest.powerdns.com" "built" "20170306160718" "root@rpmbuild-64-centos-7.dev.cpanel.net)"

    Hello,
    This version string reporting can be changed by setting the following in /etc/pdns/pdns.conf:
