Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19091
The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Matthias Andree reports : A vulnerability was found in the fetchnews program (the NNTP client) that may under some circumstances cause a wait for input that never arrives, fetchnews 'hangs'. [...] As only one fetchnews program can run at a time, subsequently started fetchnews and texpire programs will terminate. [...] Upgrade your leafnode package to version 1.11.3.
