Synopsis :

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

Description :

SecurityFocus reports about libmusicbrainz :

The libmusicbrainz library is prone to multiple buffer-overflow
vulnerabilities because the application fails to check the size of the
data before copying it into a finite-sized internal memory buffer.

An attacker can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code within
the context of the application or to cause a denial-of-service
condition.
