The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
James Youngman reports :
When GNU locate reads filenames from an old-format locate database,
they are read into a fixed-length buffer allocated on the heap.
Filenames longer than the 1026-byte buffer can cause a buffer overrun.
The overrunning data can be chosen by any person able to control the
names of filenames created on the local system. This will normally
include all local users, but in many cases also remote users (for
example in the case of FTP servers allowing uploads).
