Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59746
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionProblem description :
There is a programming error in the DES implementation used in crypt() when handling input which contains characters that can not be represented with 7-bit ASCII.
When the input contains characters with only the most significant bit set (0x80), that character and all characters after it will be ignored.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
