FreeBSD : LibreSSL -- Memory leak and buffer overflow (e75a96df-73ca-11e5-9b45-b499baebfeaf)

High Nessus Plugin ID 86434


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


Qualys reports :

During the code review of OpenSMTPD a memory leak and buffer overflow (an off-by-one, usually stack-based) were discovered in LibreSSL's OBJ_obj2txt() function. This function is called automatically during a TLS handshake (both client-side, unless an anonymous mode is used, and server-side, if client authentication is requested).


Update the affected package.
