FreeBSD : drm graphics drivers -- Local privilege escalation and denial of service (ecb7fdec-0b82-11ea-874d-0c9d925bbbc0)

high Nessus Plugin ID 131173


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Intel reports :

As part of IPU 2019.2, INTEL-SA-00242 advises that insufficient access control may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via local access.

INTEL-SA-00260 advises that insufficient access control may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable denial of service via local access.


Update the affected packages.
