FreeBSD : corkscrew -- buffer overflow vulnerability (67a1c3ae-ad69-11df-9be6-0015587e2cc1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 48397
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe affected corkscrew versions use sscanf calls without proper bounds checking. In the authentication file parsing routine this can cause an exploitable buffer overflow condition. A similar but issue exists in the server response code but appears to be non-exploitable.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
