Description David 2014-04-10 17:50:00 UTC
freebsd-update is vulnerable to freeze attacks.


Solution summary: the server-side inclusion of date-stamps, and strict client-side enforcement of expiration policies would mitigate this attack vector.

batch change:

For bugs that match the following
-  Status Is In progress 
- Untouched since 2018-01-01.
- Affects Base System OR Documentation


Reset to open status.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.

Drop freebsd-update PRs which were assigned to me.  I'm not working on this code any more.
