Hi Dan, The right place to report security problems with FreeBSD is to the Security Officer team. A PGP signed email to the email address of the security team at <security-offi...@freebsd.org> is enough to get the attention of the FreeBSD Project.
Przemyslaw should email security-officer with any details he thinks are relevant. Then the security team will make sure to fix the bug for all affected releases of FreeBSD, release a patch with the fix, issue an advisory through the usual channels, and post the details online at our security information web pages at <http://www.FreeBSD.org/security/>.
