Synopsis :

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

Description :

SLiM assigns logged on users a PATH in which the current working
directory ('./') is included. This PATH can allow unintentional code
execution through planted binaries and has therefore been fixed SLiM
version 1.3.2.
