Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

rwhitworth reports :

I was using American Fuzzy Lop (afl-fuzz) to fuzz input to the
mime-parse test program. Is fixing these crashes something you're
interested in? The input files can be found here :
https://github.com/rwhitworth/libetpan-fuzz/.

The files can be executed as ./mime-parse id_filename to cause seg
faults.
