Synopsis :

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

Description :

The Tor Project reports :

Tor 0.3.0.9 fixes a path selection bug that would allow a client to
use a guard that was in the same network family as a chosen exit
relay. This is a security regression; all clients running earlier
versions of 0.3.0.x or 0.3.1.x should upgrade to 0.3.0.9 or
0.3.1.4-alpha.
