FreeBSD : freexl -- integer overflow (a59e263a-45cd-11e5-adde-14dae9d210b8)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Stefan Cornelius reports :

There's an integer overflow in the allocate_cells() function when
trying to allocate the memory for worksheet with specially crafted
row/column dimensions. This can be exploited to cause a heap memory
corruption. The most likely outcome of this is a crash when trying to
initialize the cells later in the function.
