Synopsis :

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

Description :

ACME Updates reports :

mini_httpd 1.21 and earlier allows remote attackers to obtain
sensitive information from process memory via an HTTP request with a
long protocol string, which triggers an incorrect response size
calculation and an out-of-bounds read.

(rene) ACME, the author, claims that the vulnerability is fixed
*after* version 1.22, released on 2015-12-28
