FreeBSD : lldpd -- Buffer overflow/Denial of service (2a4a112a-7c1b-11e5-bd77-0800275369e2)

High Nessus Plugin ID 86620


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


The lldpd developer Vincent Bernat reports :

A buffer overflow may allow arbitrary code execution only if hardening was disabled.

Malformed packets should not make lldpd crash. Ensure we can handle them by not using assert() in this part.


Update the affected package.
