Synopsis :

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

Description :

Jan Kundrat reports :

An SSL stripping vulnerability was discovered in Trojita, a fast Qt
IMAP e-mail client. User's credentials are never leaked, but if a user
tries to send an e-mail, the automatic saving into the 'sent' or
'draft' folders could happen over a plaintext connection even if the
user's preferences specify STARTTLS as a requirement.
