Synopsis :

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

Description :

Pizzashack reports :

Max Vozeler has reported a problem whereby rssh can allow users who
have shell access to systems where rssh is installed (and
rssh_chroot_helper is installed SUID) to gain root access to the
system, due to the ability to chroot to arbitrary locations. There are
a lot of potentially mitigating factors, but to be safe you should
upgrade immediately.
