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


Marcus Meissner discovered that imlib's BMP decoder would crash when loading the test BMP file created by Chris Evans for testing the previous Qt vulnerability. It is believed that this bug could be exploited for arbitrary code execution.
