FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- devfs rules not applied by default for jails (6b6ca5b6-6007-11e6-a6c3-14dae9d210b8)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The default devfs rulesets are not loaded on boot, even when jails are
used. Device nodes will be created in the jail with their normal
default access permissions, while most of them should be hidden and
inaccessible. Impact : Jailed processes can get access to restricted
resources on the host system. For jailed processes running with
superuser privileges this implies access to all devices on the system.
This level of access could lead to information leakage and privilege
