Synopsis :

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

Description :

Logstash developers report : Passwords Printed in Log Files under Some
Conditions It was discovered that, in Logstash 2.1.0+, log messages
generated by a stalled pipeline during shutdown will print plaintext
contents of password fields. While investigating this issue we also
discovered that debug logging has included this data for quite some
time. Our latest releases fix both leaks. You will want to scrub old
log files if this is of particular concern to you. This was fixed in
issue #4965
