Kernel patchedWe've patched the kernel to protect against the latest FreeBSD advisory, "FreeBSD Security Advisory FreeBSD-SA-05:04.ifconf"
"""The SIOCGIFCONF ioctl allows a user process to ask the kernel to produce a list of the existing network interfaces and copy it into a buffer provided by the user process.
II. Problem Description
In generating the list of network interfaces, the kernel writes into a portion of a buffer without first zeroing it. As a result, the prior contents of the buffer will be disclosed to the calling process."""
