Synopsis :

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

Description :

The phpbb developer group reports :

phpBB Group announces the release of phpBB 2.0.13, the 'Beware of the
furries' edition. This release addresses two recent security exploits,
one of them critical. They were reported a few days after .12 was
released and no one is more annoyed than us, having to release a new
version ini such a short period of time. Fortunately both fixes are
easy and in each case just one line needs to be edited.
