FreeBSD : shotwell -- not verifying certificates (448047e9-030e-4ce4-910b-f21a3ad5d9a0)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Michael Catanzaro reports :

Shotwell has a serious security issue ('Shotwell does not verify TLS
certificates'). Upstream is no longer active and I do not expect any
further upstream releases unless someone from the community steps up
to maintain it.

What is the impact of the issue? If you ever used any of the publish
functionality (publish to Facebook, publish to Flickr, etc.), your
passwords may have been stolen; changing them is not a bad idea.

What is the risk of the update? Regressions. The easiest way to
validate TLS certificates was to upgrade WebKit; it seems to work but
I don't have accounts with the online services it supports, so I don't
know if photo publishing still works properly on all the services.
