From VID-6B90ACBA-6A0A-11EA-92AB-00163E433440:

Problem Description:

A missing NUL-termination check for the jail_set(2) configration

option "osrelease" may return more bytes when reading the jail

configuration back with jail_get(2) than were originally set.

Impact:

For jails with a non-default setting of children.max > 0 ("nested

jails") a superuser inside a jail can create a jail and may be able to

read and take advantage of exposed kernel memory.
