FreeBSD : helvis -- information leak vulnerabilities (bb99f803-5fde-11d9-b721-00065be4b5b6)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Once a recovery file has been preserved by the setuid root elvprsv
utility it is placed in a worldreadable directory with worldreadable
permissions. This possibly allows sensitive information to leak.

In addition to this information leak, it is possible for users to
recover files that belong to other users by using elvrec, another
setuid root binary.
