As far as I can see, all FreeBSD security advisories released since were posted here as well: http://www.freebsd.org/security/advisories.html http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2014/06/05/20 http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2014/06/24/17 http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2014/06/24/18 http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2014/07/08/17 It seems we need someone form FreeBSD team to change their system to avoid posting all their errata here, or force moderation for all mails from security-advisories@...ebsd.org. -- Tomas Hoger / Red Hat Security Response Team
