The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


In 2001, zen-parse discovered a buffer overflow in xloadimage's FACES image loader. A maliciously crafted image could cause xloadimage to execute arbitrary code. A published exploit exists for this vulnerability.

In 2005, Rob Holland discovered that the same vulnerability was present in xli.
