The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Ulf Harnhammar reported four bugs in metamail: two are format string
bugs and two are buffer overflows. The bugs are in SaveSquirrelFile(),
PrintHeader(), and ShareThisHeader().
These vulnerabilities could be triggered by a maliciously formatted
email message if `metamail' or `splitmail' is used to process it,
possibly resulting in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of
the user reading mail.
