Synopsis :

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

Description :

Debian Security Team reports :

It was discovered that Quagga, an IP routing daemon, could no longer
process the Internet routing table due to broken handling of multiple
4-byte AS numbers in an AS path. If such a prefix is received, the BGP
daemon crashes with an assert failure leading to a denial of service.
