Bug#645377: kfreebsd-8: Buffer overflow in handling of UNIX socket addresses

package: kfreebsd-8
version: 8.1
severity: serious
tag: security , patch

A buffer overflow issue in kfreebsd has been disclosed [0] along with a
poc [1]. patch is available [2].

I've only checked the kfreebsd-8 source, but the description says -7 is
affected, and 9- and higher may be as well; I haven't checked those.

Best wishes,
