Synopsis :

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

Description :

Kees Cook reports :

Janne Snabb discovered that applications using VTE, such as
gnome-terminal, did not correctly filter window and icon title request
escape codes. If a user were tricked into viewing specially crafted
output in their terminal, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary
commands with user privileges.
