FreeBSD : aacplusenc -- denial of service (7801b1e1-99b4-42ac-ab22-7646235e7c16)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103479


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


Gentoo developers report :

DeleteBitBuffer in libbitbuf/bitbuffer.c in mp4tools aacplusenc 0.17.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid memory write, SEGV on unknown address 0x000000000030, and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted .wav file, aka a NULL pointer dereference.


Update the affected package.
