FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- memory leak in sandboxed namei lookup (73964eac-6007-11e6-a6c3-14dae9d210b8)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92910
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe namei facility will leak a small amount of kernel memory every time a sandboxed process looks up a nonexistent path name. Impact : A remote attacker that can cause a sandboxed process (for instance, a web server) to look up a large number of nonexistent path names can cause memory exhaustion.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
