Synopsis :

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

Description :

Red Hat reports :

Will Drewry of the Google Security Team reported several flaws in the
way libvorbis processed audio data. An attacker could create a
carefully crafted [Vorbis] audio file in such a way that it could
cause an application linked with libvorbis to crash, or execute
arbitrary code when it was opened.
