Medium Nessus Plugin ID 19181


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


When downloading a batch of files from an FTP server the mget command does not check for directory escapes. A specially crafted file on the FTP server could then potentially overwrite an existing file of the user.


Update the affected package.
