FreeBSD : dpkg -- stack-based buffer overflow (876768aa-ab1e-11e5-8a30-5453ed2e2b49)

High Nessus Plugin ID 87613


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


Salvatore Bonaccorso reports :

Hanno Boeck discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the dpkg-deb component of dpkg, the Debian package management system. This flaw could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution if a user or an automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted Debian binary package (.deb) in the old style Debian binary package format.


Update the affected packages.
