It is recommended that all users upgrade to a supported release.


Abstract
========

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in NPF:

 1) Integer overflow when parsing IPv6 headers.

 2) Use-after-free when handling ICMP packets.

Issue 2 will not be fixed in the netbsd-6-0 branch.


Technical Details
=================

 1) An integer overflow could be triggered when NPF was parsing IPv6
    options of a packet. This overflow could result in a header length
    that was smaller than expected, which could allow an incoming
    packet to bypass L4 rules.

 2) A use-after-free could occur when NPF was parsing an ICMP packet.
    This could result in a rule bypass, a panic, or unexpected
    behavior.


Solutions and Workarounds
=========================

For all NetBSD versions, you need to obtain fixed kernel sources,
rebuild and install the new kernel, and reboot the system.

The fixed source may be obtained from the NetBSD CVS repository.
The following instructions briefly summarize how to upgrade your
kernel. In these instructions, replace:

  ARCH     with your architecture (from uname -m),
  KERNCONF with the name of your kernel configuration file and
  VERSION  with the file version below

File versions containing the fixes:

                   1.8.4.8      n/a            1.8.4.7.2.1


To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install the kernel:

	# cd src
	# cvs update -d -P -r VERSION sys/net/npf/npf.h
	# cvs update -d -P -r VERSION sys/net/npf/npf_inet.c
	# cvs update -d -P -r VERSION sys/net/npf/npf_alg_icmp.c
	# ./build.sh kernel=KERNCONF
	# mv /netbsd /netbsd.old
	# cp sys/arch/ARCH/compile/obj/KERNCONF/netbsd /netbsd
	# shutdown -r now
