NetBSD Information for VU#284857
ISC DHCPD minires library contains multiple buffer overflows
Currently supported versions of NetBSD do not contain the error handling routine vulnerabilities. Such vulnerabilities were fixed prior to the release of NetBSD 1.5.
With respect to the patch to ns_name.c, we believe that this is good defensive programming and have applied the patch to NetBSD-current. However, all calls to ns_name_ntol in the NetBSD source base pass a correct, constant, non-zero value as the datsiz parameter.
Therefore, NetBSD is not vulnerable.
The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
The CERT/CC has no additional comments at this time.
