Synopsis :

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

Description :

iDefense Laps reports :

Remote exploitation of multiple integer overflow vulnerabilities in
libFLAC, as included with various vendor's software distributions,
allows attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the
currently logged in user.

These vulnerabilities specifically exist in the handling of malformed
FLAC media files. In each case, an integer overflow can occur while
calculating the amount of memory to allocate. As such, insufficient
memory is allocated for the data that is subsequently read in from the
file, and a heap based buffer overflow occurs.
