FreeBSD : portupgrade-devel -- lack of distfile checksums (b428e6b3-926c-11e1-8d7b-003067b2972c)

High Nessus Plugin ID 58920


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


Ports security team reports :

The portupgrade-devel port fetched directly from a git respository without checking against a known good SHA hash. This means that it is possible that packages built using this port may not match the one vetted by the maintainer. Users are advised to rebuild portupgrade-devel from known good sources.


Update the affected package.
