High Nessus Plugin ID 84529


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


Gregory Maxwell reports :

On July 7th I will be making public details of several serious denial of service vulnerabilities which have fixed in recent versions of Bitcoin Core, including including CVE-2015-3641.

I strongly recommend anyone running production nodes exposed to inbound connections from the internet upgrade to 0.10.2 as soon as possible.


Update the affected package.
