deadsimple BSD Security Advisories and Announcements

MidnightBSD 0.5.3-RELEASE

MidnightBSD 0.5.3-RELEASE is now available via subversion. 

Fix several security vulnerabilities in OpenSSL, routed, rtsold,
and namei with respect to Capsicum sandboxes looking up
nonexistent path names and leaking memory.

destination address for the response is on a directly connected

Due to a missing length check in the code that handles DNS parameters,
a malformed router advertisement message can result in a stack buffer
overflow in rtsold(8).

In addition, we've released 0.5.2-RELEASE ISOs on the FTP server for both amd64 and i386. 
We plan to do rollup security releases periodically.
