Due to insufficient length checking in ktruser() as used by FreeBSD and
Darwin compatibility code, it is possible for a user to cause an integer
overflow, resulting in a local denial of service and potentially
local root compromise.

This vulnerability has been assigned CVE reference CVE-2007-1273.

Solutions and Workarounds

Kernels with FreeBSD and/or Darwin binary emulation are affected, including
the default GENERIC kernel install.  Users of affected NetBSD versions are
highly recommended to upgrade their kernel.

Only kernels compiled with the following options are vulnerable to this issue:


As a temporary workaround recompile the kernel with the above options
commented out.

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 summarise how to upgrade your
kernel.  In these instructions, replace:

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

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

	# cd src
	# cvs update sys/kern/kern_ktrace.c \
		sys/sys/ktrace.h \
		sys/compat/freebsd/freebsd_misc.c \
		sys/compat/darwin/darwin_iohidsystem.c \
	# ./build.sh kernel=KERNCONF
	# mv /netbsd /netbsd.old
	# cp sys/arch/ARCH/compile/obj/KERNCONF/netbsd /netbsd
	# shutdown -r now
