FreeBSD : Tor -- remote denial of service (c1dc55dc-9556-11e6-b154-3065ec8fd3ec)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The Tor Blog reports :

Prevent a class of security bugs caused by treating the contents of a
buffer chunk as if they were a NUL-terminated string. At least one
such bug seems to be present in all currently used versions of Tor,
and would allow an attacker to remotely crash most Tor instances,
especially those compiled with extra compiler hardening. With this
defense in place, such bugs can't crash Tor, though we should still
fix them as they occur. Closes ticket 20384 (TROVE-2016-10-001).
