                    x SECURITY NOTE: The pine software has had several remote x
                    x vulnerabilities discovered in the past, which allowed remote x
                    x attackers to execute arbitrary code as you on your local system, x
                    x by the action of sending a specially-prepared email. All such x
                    x KNOWN problems have been fixed, but the pine code is written in a x
                    x very insecure style and the FreeBSD Security Officer believes x
                    x there are likely to be other undiscovered vulnerabilities. Do you x
                    x wish to proceed with the installation of pine anyway? x
                    x [ Yes ] No x
