Synopsis :

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

Description :

Konversation developers report :

Konversation's Blowfish ECB encryption support assumes incoming blocks
to be the expected 12 bytes. The lack of a sanity-check for the actual
size can cause a denial of service and an information leak to the
local user.
