The OpenBSD-team has known about this for -6- days (15th of June),
and they haven't been able to come up with atleast a temporary fix?
I can't find anything on errdata / security warnings,
what's up with that?
I have communicated with several vendors and IMHO the OpenBSD folks are quite nice.
They are much better than Microsoft for example.
I believe that this patch is not trivial.
