Summary

Adam Nowacki discovered that the new FreeBSD NFS implementation processes a crafted READDIR request which instructs to operate a file system on a file node as if it were a directory node, leading to a kernel crash or potentially arbitrary code execution. The kfreebsd-8 kernel in the oldstable distribution (squeeze) does not enable the new NFS implementation. The Linux kernel is not affected by this vulnerability.
