The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
According to Maksymilian Arciemowicz research, it is possible to
bypass security restrictions of safe_mode in various functions via
directory traversal vulnerability. The attacker can use this attack to
gain access to sensitive information. Functions utilizing
expand_filepath() may be affected.
It should be noted that this vulnerability is not considered to be
serious by the FreeBSD Security Team, since safe_mode and open_basedir
are insecure by design and should not be relied upon.
