FreeBSD : shotwell -- failure to encrypt authentication (5a9b3d70-48e2-4267-b196-83064cb14fe0)

High Nessus Plugin ID 96938


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


Jens Georg reports :

I have just released Shotwell 0.24.5 and 0.25.4 which turn on HTTPS encryption all over the publishing plugins.

Users using Tumblr and Yandex.Fotki publishing are strongly advised to change their passwords and reauthenticate Shotwell to those services after upgrade.

Users of Picasa and Youtube publishing are strongly advised to reauthenticate (Log out and back in) Shotwell to those services after upgrade.


Update the affected package.
