SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe libssh team reports :
In an environment where a user is only allowed to copy files and not to execute applications, it would be possible to pass a location which contains commands to be executed in additon.
When the libssh SCP client connects to a server, the scp command, which includes a user-provided path, is executed on the server-side.
In case the library is used in a way where users can influence the third parameter of ssh_scp_new(), it would become possible for an attacker to inject arbitrary commands, leading to a compromise of the remote target.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
