Description

In FreeBSD before 11.2-STABLE(r343782), 11.2-RELEASE-p9, 12.0-STABLE(r343781), and 12.0-RELEASE-p3, kernel callee-save registers are not properly sanitized before return from system calls, potentially allowing some kernel data used in the system call to be exposed.

Solution(s)

  • freebsd-upgrade-base-11_2-release-p9
  • freebsd-upgrade-base-12_0-release-p3

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
