FreeBSD : monotone -- remote denial of service in default setup (c9a6ae4a-df8b-11df-9573-00262d5ed8ee)

High Nessus Plugin ID 50320

Synopsis

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

Description

The monotone developers report :

Running 'mtn ''' or 'mtn ls ''' doesn't cause an internal error anymore. In monotone 0.48 and earlier this behavior could be used to crash a server remotely (but only if it was configured to allow execution of remote commands).

Solution

Update the affected package.
