The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Problem Description Several tcpdump protocol decoders contain
programming errors which can cause them to go into infinite loops.
Impact An attacker can inject specially crafted packets into the
network which, when processed by tcpdump, could lead to a
denial-of-service. After the attack, tcpdump would no longer capture
traffic, and would potentially use all available processor time.
