FreeBSD : gsoap -- remote code execution via via overflow (8745c67e-7dd1-4165-96e2-fcf9da2dc5b5)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Senrio reports :

Genivia gSOAP is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability
because it fails to properly bounds check user-supplied data before
copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

A remote attacker may exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in
the context of the affected device. Failed attempts will likely cause
a denial-of-service condition.
