Synopsis

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

Description

When pavuk sends a request to a web server and the server sends back the HTTP status code 305 (Use Proxy), pavuk copies data from the HTTP Location header in an unsafe manner. This leads to a stack-based buffer overflow with control over EIP.

Solution

Update the affected package.
