High Nessus Plugin ID 22141


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

Fixed 2 more possible memory allocation attacks. They are similar to the problem we fixed with 1.4.4. This bug can easily be exploited for a DoS; remote code execution is not entirely impossible.


Update the affected package.
