Synopsis :

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

Description :

Some third-party applications, including KDE's kcheckpass command,
allow the user to specify the name of the policy on the command line.
Since OpenPAM treats the policy name as a path relative to /etc/pam.d
or /usr/local/etc/pam.d, users who are permitted to run such an
application can craft their own policies and cause the application to
load and execute their own modules.
