2.2.5 New Features and Changes¶
Updated to FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p24
FreeBSD-SA-15:25.ntp Multiple vulnerabilities in NTP [REVISED]
FreeBSD-SA-15:14.bsdpatch: Due to insufficient sanitization of the input patch stream, it is possible for a patch file to cause patch(1) to run commands in addition to the desired SCCS or RCS commands.
FreeBSD-SA-15:16.openssh: OpenSSH client does not correctly verify DNS SSHFP records when a server offers a certificate. CVE-2014-2653 OpenSSH servers which are configured to allow password authentication using PAM (default) would allow many password attempts.
FreeBSD-SA-15:18.bsdpatch: Due to insufficient sanitization of the input patch stream, it is possible for a patch file to cause patch(1) to pass certain ed(1) scripts to the ed(1) editor, which would run commands.
FreeBSD-SA-15:20.expat: Multiple integer overflows have been discovered in the XML_GetBuffer() function in the expat library.
FreeBSD-SA-15:21.amd64: If the kernel-mode IRET instruction generates an #SS or #NP exception, but the exception handler does not properly ensure that the right GS register base for kernel is reloaded, the userland GS segment may be used in the context of the kernel exception handler.
FreeBSD-SA-15:22.openssh: A programming error in the privileged monitor process of the sshd(8) service may allow the username of an already-authenticated user to be overwritten by the unprivileged child process. A use-after-free error in the privileged monitor process of the sshd(8) service may be deterministically triggered by the actions of a compromised unprivileged child process. A use-after-free error in the session multiplexing code in the sshd(8) service may result in unintended termination of the connection.
pfSense-SA-15_08.webgui: Multiple Stored XSS Vulnerabilities in the pfSense® WebGUI
