    Buffer overflow in the "linux emulation" support in FreeBSD kernel
    allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) and possibly
    execute arbitrary code by calling the bind system call with a long path
    for a UNIX-domain socket, which is not properly handled when the
    address is used by other unspecified system calls.
