medium Nessus Plugin ID 45338

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Jakob Lell reports :

The rmt client implementation of GNU Tar/Cpio contains a heap-based buffer overflow which possibly allows arbitrary code execution.

The problem can be exploited when using an untrusted/compromised rmt server.

Solution

Update the affected package.
