High Nessus Plugin ID 85997


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

In the 'Shutter' screenshot application, I discovered that using the 'Show in folder' menu option while viewing a file with a specially crafted path allows for arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the user running Shutter.


Update the affected package.
