NetBSD does not ship with mgetty as part of the base distribution, but it is available as an optional third-party package. We did distribute a package with a vulnerable version (less that 1.1.22). We do not intend to release a specific vulnerability notice, but we do have other means of notifying users of our third party packages about vulnerabilities in said packages (the "audit-packages" system).
The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
The CERT/CC has no additional comments at this time.
If you have feedback, comments, or additional information about this vulnerability, please send us email.
