High Nessus Plugin ID 101330


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


irssi reports :

When receiving messages with invalid time stamps, Irssi would try to dereference a NULL pointer.

While updating the internal nick list, Irssi may incorrectly use the GHashTable interface and free the nick while updating it. This will then result in use-after-free conditions on each access of the hash table.


Update the affected package.
