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


Secunia team reports :

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Sympa, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to the application allowing access to archive functions without checking credentials. This can be exploited to create, download, and delete an archive.


Update the affected package.
