FreeBSD : gnomevfs -- unsafe URI handling (7884d56f-f7a1-11d8-9837-000c41e2cdad)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Alexander Larsson reports that some versions of gnome-vfs and
MidnightCommander contain a number of `extfs' scripts that do not
properly validate user input. If an attacker can cause her victim to
process a specially crafted URI, arbitrary commands can be executed
with the privileges of the victim.
