Synopsis :

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

Description :

The Tor Project reports :

A remote heap overflow vulnerability that can allow remote code
execution. Other fixes address a variety of assert and crash bugs,
most of which we think are hard to exploit remotely. All Tor users
should upgrade.
