FreeBSD : exim -- local privillege escalation (7d09b9ee-e0ba-11e5-abc4-6fb07af136d2)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 89089
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe Exim development team reports :
All installations having Exim set-uid root and using 'perl_startup' are vulnerable to a local privilege escalation. Any user who can start an instance of Exim (and this is normally any user) can gain root privileges. If you do not use 'perl_startup' you should be safe.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
