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


Erik Sjolund discovered several issues in enscript : it suffers from several buffer overflows, quotes and shell escape characters are insufficiently sanitized in filenames, and it supported taking input from an arbitrary command pipe, with unwanted side effects.


Update the affected packages.
