CERT's website seems to have changed drastically since I used it last, but here's the National Vulnerability Database Search page (which you can use to search CERT alerts, too):

Looks like this is the current list (past 3 months only):

OpenBSD - 1
NetBSD - 1
FreeBSD - 2
Solaris - 38
Windows - 47
Linux - 64
Mac OS X - 72

Edit - The same vulnerability is listed for OpenBSD and NetBSD. It was fixed in OpenBSD 3.8, which came out November 1, 2005. It was fixed in NetBSD on August 19, 2011 (the day it was reported).

Not to get on a soapbox or anything, but that's why I use OpenBSD. They actively hunt the codebase for bugs and fix them no matter how trivial they appear to be, because you never know when that simple "off by one" bug can turn into a security nightmare six years later.
