Synopsis :

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

Description :

An rsnapshot Advisory reports :

The copy_symlink() subroutine in rsnapshot incorrectly changes file
ownership on the files pointed to by symlinks, not on the symlinks
themselves. This would allow, under certain circumstances, an
arbitrary user to take ownership of a file on the main filesystem.
