Summary

The remote host is missing an update to the system as announced in the referenced advisory FreeBSD-SA-08:13.protosw.asc

Insight

Insight

The FreeBSD kernel provides support for a variety of different types of communications sockets, including IPv4, IPv6, ISDN, ATM, routing protocol, link-layer, netgraph(4), and bluetooth sockets. As an early form of object-oriented design, much of the functionality specific to different types of sockets is abstracted via function pointers. Some function pointers for netgraph and bluetooth sockets are not properly initialized.

Solution

Solution

Upgrade your system to the appropriate stable release or security branch dated after the correction date https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=FreeBSD-SA-08:13.protosw.asc
