FreeBSD : dnsmasq -- remotely exploitable buffer overflow in release candidate (7927165a-0126-11e5-9d98-080027ef73ec)

High Nessus Plugin ID 83797


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


Simon Kelley reports :

Anyone running 2.[73]rc6 or 2.[73]rc7 should be aware that there's a remotely exploitable buffer overflow in those trees. I just tagged 2.[73]rc8, which includes the fix.

(Corrections from second URL.)


Update the affected package.
