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


Debian Project reports :

Erik Sjolund discovered a buffer overflow in pcdsvgaview, an SVGA PhotoCD viewer. xpcd-svga is part of xpcd and uses svgalib to display graphics on the Linux console for which root permissions are required.
A malicious user could overflow a fixed-size buffer and may cause the program to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.


Update the affected package.
