Description

In FreeBSD before 11.1-STABLE, 11.2-RELEASE-p3, 11.1-RELEASE-p14, 10.4-STABLE, and 10.4-RELEASE-p12, insufficient validation in the ELF header parser could allow a malicious ELF binary to cause a kernel crash or disclose kernel memory.

Solution(s)

  • freebsd-upgrade-base-10_4-release-p12
  • freebsd-upgrade-base-11_1-release-p14
  • freebsd-upgrade-base-11_2-release-p3
