High Nessus Plugin ID 18968


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


Roger Dingledine reports :

The Tor release from a few days ago includes a fix for a bug that might allow an attacker to read arbitrary memory (maybe even keys) from an exit server's process space. We haven't heard any reports of exploits yet, but hey.


Update the affected package.
