Hi, the following CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id was published for kfreebsd-7 some time ago. CVE-2009-1041: | The ktimer feature (sys/kern/kern_time.c) in FreeBSD 7.0, 7.1, and 7.2 | allows local users to overwrite arbitrary kernel memory via an | out-of-bounds timer value. Unfortunately the vulnerability described above is not important enough to get it fixed via regular security update in Debian stable. It does not warrant a DSA. However it would be nice if this could get fixed via a regular point update. Please contact the release team for this. This is an automatically generated mail, in case you are already working on an upgrade this is of course pointless.
