FreeBSD : freexl -- integer overflow (a59e263a-45cd-11e5-adde-14dae9d210b8)
High Nessus Plugin ID 85520
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionStefan Cornelius reports :
There's an integer overflow in the allocate_cells() function when trying to allocate the memory for worksheet with specially crafted row/column dimensions. This can be exploited to cause a heap memory corruption. The most likely outcome of this is a crash when trying to initialize the cells later in the function.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
