Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Chris Evans reports that AbiWord is vulnerable to multiple stack-based
buffer overflow vulnerabilities. This is caused by improper checking
of the user-supplied data before it is being copied to an too small
buffer. The vulnerability is triggered when someone is importing RTF
files.
