The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Gregory Beaver reports :
A standard feature of the PEAR installer implemented in all versions
of PEAR can lead to the execution of arbitrary PHP code upon running
the 'pear' command or loading the Web/Gtk frontend.
To be vulnerable, a user must explicitly install a publicly released
malicious package using the PEAR installer, or explicitly install a
package that depends on a malicious package.
