FreeBSD : Enhanced cTorrent -- stack-based overflow (83d7d149-b965-11de-a515-0022156e8794)
High Nessus Plugin ID 42310
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionSecurityfocus reports :
cTorrent and dTorrent are prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because the software fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.
Successful exploits allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of a vulnerable application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
