FreeBSD : leafnode fetchnews denial-of-service triggered by truncated transmission (a051a4ec-3aa1-4dd1-9bdc-a61eb5700153)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 37223
The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
When a downloaded news article ends prematurely, i. e. when the server sends [CR]LF.[CR]LF before sending a blank line, fetchnews may wait indefinitely for data that never arrives. Workaround: configure 'minlines=1' (or use a bigger value) in the configuration file. Found by Toni Viemero.
