Synopsis :

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

Description :

Ports security team reports :

The portupgrade-devel port fetched directly from a git respository
without checking against a known good SHA hash. This means that it is
possible that packages built using this port may not match the one
vetted by the maintainer. Users are advised to rebuild
portupgrade-devel from known good sources.
