Default FreeBSD issues five security advisories for Christmas

From http://h-online.com/-1401271

"The timing, to put it bluntly, sucks" said Colin Percival, FreeBSD Security Officer, in a posting explaining why the FreeBSD developers had to issue five security advisories on the Friday before Christmas. According to Percival, the developers had to do it because one of the flaws, a remote root vulnerability in telnetd, was being actively exploited in the wild and that, while "most people have moved past telnet and on to SSH by now", the security problem was not "an issue we could postpone until a more convenient time"
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
