Synopsis :

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

Description :

An unknown remotely exploitable vulnerability was disclosed. Robert
Segall writes :

a security vulnerability was brought to my attention (many thanks to
Akira Higuchi). Everyone running any previous version should upgrade
to 1.6 immediately - the vulnerability may allow a remote exploit. No
exploits are currently known and none have been observed in the wild
till now. The danger is minimised if you run Pound in a root jail
and/or you run Pound as non-root user.
