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

critical Nessus Plugin ID 86620

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected package.
