High Nessus Plugin ID 32388


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


Red Hat reports :

Will Drewry of the Google Security Team reported several flaws in the way libvorbis processed audio data. An attacker could create a carefully crafted [Vorbis] audio file in such a way that it could cause an application linked with libvorbis to crash, or execute arbitrary code when it was opened.


Update the affected package.
