FreeBSD : libbson -- Denial of Service (10214bda-0902-4e3b-a2f9-9a68ef206a73)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103474


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


mongodb developers report :

In MongoDB libbson 1.7.0, the bson_iter_codewscope function in bson-iter.c miscalculates a bson_utf8_validate length argument, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read in the bson_utf8_validate function in bson-utf8.c), as demonstrated by bson-to-json.c.


Update the affected package.
