Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The environment variable HOME is copied without regard to buffer size,
which can be used to gain elevated privilege if the binary is
installed setgid games, and a string is read from the high score file
without bounds check.

The port installs the binary without setgid, but with a world-writable
high score file.
