Synopsis :

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

Description :

Richard J. Moore reports :

The builtin GIF decoder in QtGui prior to Qt 5.3 contained a bug that
would lead to a NULL pointer dereference when loading certain hand
crafted corrupt GIF files. This in turn would cause the application
loading these hand crafted GIFs to crash.
