critical Nessus Plugin ID 85337
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The Mozilla Project reports :

Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover two buffer overflow issues in the Libvpx library used for WebM video when decoding a malformed WebM video file. These buffer overflows result in potentially exploitable crashes.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
