FreeBSD : Vulnerabilities in H.323 implementations (27c331d5-64c7-11d8-80e3-0020ed76ef5a)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

The NISCC and the OUSPG developed a test suite for the H.323 protocol.
This test suite has uncovered vulnerabilities in several H.323
implementations with impacts ranging from denial-of-service to
arbitrary code execution.

In the FreeBSD Ports Collection, `pwlib' is directly affected. Other
applications such as `asterisk' and `openh323' incorporate `pwlib'
statically and so are also independently affected.
