New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

Tavis Ormandy discovered several integer overflows in xli's image size handling. A maliciously crafted image may be able to cause a heap buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Update the affected package.
