The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
The newsgrab script uses insecure permissions during the creation of
the local output directory and downloaded files.
After a file is created, permissions on it are set using the mode
value of the newsgroup posting. This can potentially be a problem when
the mode is not restrictive enough. In addition, the output directory
is created with world-writable permissions allowing other users to
drop symlinks or other files at that location.
