Synopsis

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

Description

Data supplied by a remote server is used as the format string instead of as parameters in a syslog() call. This may lead to crashes or potential running of arbitrary code. It is only a problem when running in daemon mode (very common) and when using some service types.

Solution

Update the affected package.
