FreeBSD : suphp -- multiple local privilege escalation vulnerabilities (fb672330-02db-11dd-bd06-0017319806e7)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple local privilege escalation are found in the symlink
verification code. An attacker may use it to run a PHP script with the
victim's privilege. This attack is a little harder when suphp operates
in paranoid mode. For suphp that runs in owner mode which is the
default in ports, immediate upgrade to latest version is advised.
