FreeBSD : net/eternalterminal -- Multiple vulnerabilities (b6f7ad7d-9b19-11ed-9a3f-b42e991fc52e)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 170399



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


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the b6f7ad7d-9b19-11ed-9a3f-b42e991fc52e advisory.

- In Eternal Terminal 6.2.1, etserver and etclient have predictable logfile names in /tmp. (CVE-2022-48257)

- In Eternal Terminal 6.2.1, etserver and etclient have world-readable logfiles. (CVE-2022-48258)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected packages.
