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


rwhitworth reports :

I was using American Fuzzy Lop (afl-fuzz) to fuzz input to the mime-parse test program. Is fixing these crashes something you're interested in? The input files can be found here :

The files can be executed as ./mime-parse id_filename to cause seg faults.


Update the affected package.
