Synopsis :

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

Description :

If GnuPG processes a userid with a very long packet length, GnuPG can
crash due to insufficient bounds check. This can result in a
denial-of-service condition or potentially execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running GnuPG.
