As for vulnerability, I believe both FreeBSD and Linux have fixes
libc4.7.2 fixed it in May.
Hmm I cant find any libc4.7.2 for FreeBSD, so I'm a confused as to
which libc you mean.
The Linux libc. Sorry that was a rather confusing answer.I don't know the
state of the BSD fixes.
First I've heard of libc4.7.2; but given that it was fixed in there in May,
was anyone else alerted to the presence of a bug so that other OS's could
I don't know. It was only after the 8lgm report that I looked at the Linux
libc log to find a fix logged. The log doesnt give any impression it was
considered a security fix just a routine tidy up.
