High Nessus Plugin ID 37892
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionAn unknown remotely exploitable vulnerability was disclosed. Robert Segall writes :
a security vulnerability was brought to my attention (many thanks to Akira Higuchi). Everyone running any previous version should upgrade to 1.6 immediately - the vulnerability may allow a remote exploit. No exploits are currently known and none have been observed in the wild till now. The danger is minimised if you run Pound in a root jail and/or you run Pound as non-root user.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
