Synopsis :

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

Description :

Jodie Cunningham reports :

#1: A flaw was found in the way FreeXL reads sectors from the input
file. A specially crafted file could possibly result in stack
corruption near freexl.c:3752.

#2: A flaw was found in the function allocate_cells(). A specially
crafted file with invalid workbook dimensions could possibly result in
stack corruption near freexl.c:1074

#3: A flaw was found in the way FreeXL handles a premature EOF. A
specially crafted input file could possibly result in stack corruption

allocation. A specially crafted input file could cause a Denial of
Service, or possibly write onto the stack.
