SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionHost target list parsing routine in ettercap 0.7.4-series prior to 0.7.4.1 and 0.7.5-series is prone to the stack-based buffer overflow that may lead to the code execution with the privileges of the ettercap process.
In order to trigger this vulnerability, user or service that use ettercap should be tricked to pass the crafted list of targets via the '-j' option.
