FreeBSD : zhcon -- unauthorized file access (d371b627-6ed5-11d9-bd18-000a95bc6fae)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 19132


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


Martin Joey Schulze reports :

Erik Sjound discovered that zhcon, a fast console CJK system using the Linux framebuffer, accesses a user-controlled configuration file with elevated privileges. Thus, it is possible to read arbitrary files.

When installed from the FreeBSD Ports Collection, zhcon is installed set-user-ID root.


Update the affected packages.
