Synopsis :

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

Description :

The Perl Development page reports :

Dyad Security recently released a security advisory explaining how in
certain cases, a carefully crafted format string passed to sprintf can
cause a buffer overflow. This buffer overflow can then be used by an
attacker to execute code on the machine. This was discovered in the
context of a design problem with the Webmin administration package
that allowed a malicious user to pass unchecked data into sprintf.
