Synopsis :

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

Description :

Salvatore Bonaccorso reports :

Hanno Boeck discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the dpkg-deb
component of dpkg, the Debian package management system. This flaw
could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution if a user or an
automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted
Debian binary package (.deb) in the old style Debian binary package
format.
