FreeBSD : Memory leak bug in Toxcore (4c11b51e-cd8d-11e8-b0cb-a0f3c100ae18)
High Nessus Plugin ID 118074
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe Tox project blog reports :
A memory leak bug was discovered in Toxcore that can be triggered
remotely to exhaust one's system memory, resulting in a denial of
service attack. The bug is present in the TCP Server module of Toxcore
and therefore it affects mostly bootstrap nodes. Regular Tox clients
generally have the TCP Server functionality disabled by default,
leaving them unaffected.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
