NetBSD Information for VU#284857

ISC DHCPD minires library contains multiple buffer overflows


Not Affected

Vendor Statement

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.
