FreeBSD : phpbb -- privilege elevation and path disclosure (53e711ed-8972-11d9-9ff8-00306e01dda2)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18935


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


The phpbb developer group reports :

phpBB Group announces the release of phpBB 2.0.13, the 'Beware of the furries' edition. This release addresses two recent security exploits, one of them critical. They were reported a few days after .12 was released and no one is more annoyed than us, having to release a new version ini such a short period of time. Fortunately both fixes are easy and in each case just one line needs to be edited.


Update the affected package.
