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


A malicious web page can cause an automated file upload from the victim's machine when viewed with Mozilla with JavaScript enabled.
This is due to a bug permitting default values for type='file' <input> elements in certain situations.


Update the affected packages.
