Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19177
The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
The leafnode NNTP server may go into an unterminated loop with 100% CPU use when an article is requested by Message-ID that has been crossposted to several news groups when one of the group names is the prefix of another group name that the article was cross-posted to. Found by Jan Knutar.
