Synopsis :

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

Description :

Jason Duell reports :

Cscope contains an alarming number of buffer overflow vulnerabilities.
By a rough count, there are at least 48 places where we blindly
sprintf() a file name into a fixed-length buffer of size PATHLEN
without checking to see if the file's name is <= PATHLEN. We do
similar things with environment variable values.
