Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61515
Category:FreeBSD Local Security Checks
Title:FreeBSD Security Advisory (FreeBSD-SA-08:09.icmp6.asc)
Summary:FreeBSD Security Advisory (FreeBSD-SA-08:09.icmp6.asc)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to the system
as announced in the referenced advisory FreeBSD-SA-08:09.icmp6.asc

IPv6 nodes use ICMPv6 amongst other things to report errors encountered
while processing packets. The 'Packet Too Big Message' is sent in
case a node cannot forward a packet because the size of the packet is
larger than the MTU of next-hop link.

In case of an incoming ICMPv6 'Packet Too Big Message', there is an
insufficient check on the proposed new MTU for a path to the destination.

Solution:
Upgrade your system to the appropriate stable release
or security branch dated after the correction date
