Synopsis :

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

Description :

Arch Linux reports :

ffmpeg has a vulnerability in the current version that allows the
attacker to create a specially crafted video file, downloading which
will send files from a user PC to a remote attacker server. The attack
does not even require the user to open that file -- for example, KDE
Dolphin thumbnail generation is enough.
