FreeBSD : slim -- insecure PATH assignment (68c7187a-abd2-11df-9be6-0015587e2cc1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 48380


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


SLiM assigns logged on users a PATH in which the current working directory ('./') is included. This PATH can allow unintentional code execution through planted binaries and has therefore been fixed SLiM version 1.3.2.


Update the affected package.
