Synopsis :

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

Description :

ripMIME may prematurely terminate decoding Base64 encoded messages
when it encounters multiple blank lines or other non-standard Base64
constructs. Virus scanning and content filtering tools that use
ripMIME may therefore be bypassed.

The ripMIME CHANGELOG file says :

There's viruses going around exploiting the ability to hide the
majority of their data in an attachment by using blank lines and other
tricks to make scanning systems prematurely terminate their base64
