Synopsis :

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

Description :

Tomas Hoger reports :

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the libproxy's url::get_pac()
used to download proxy.pac proxy auto-configuration file. A malicious
host hosting proxy.pac, or a man in the middle attacker, could use
this flaw to trigger a stack-based buffer overflow in an application
using libproxy, if proxy configuration instructed it to download
proxy.pac file from a remote HTTP server.
