Synopsis :

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

Description :

Ganael Laplanche reports :

Up to now, each ldap* command was called with the -w parameter, which
allows to specify the bind password on the command line.
Unfortunately, this could make the password appear to anybody
performing a `ps` during the call. This is now avoided by using the -y
parameter and a password file.
