    CVE ID         : CVE-2011-4062
    
    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.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.1+dfsg-8+squeeze2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.2-9.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kfreebsd-8 packages.
