FreeBSD : isolate -- local root exploit (b74a8076-9b1f-11df-9f58-021e8c343e76)

High Nessus Plugin ID 48360


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


Isolate currently suffers from some bad security bugs! These are local root privilege escalation bugs. Thanks to the helpful person who reported them (email Chris if you want credit!). We're working to fix them ASAP, but until then, isolate is unsafe and you should uninstall it. Sorry!


Update the affected package.
