High Nessus Plugin ID 55821
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionTomas Hoger reports :
The compress/ LZW decompress implentation does not correctly handle compressed streams that contain code words that were not yet added to the decompression table. This may lead to arbitrary memory corruption.
Successfull exploitation may possible lead to a local privilege escalation.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
