FreeBSD 'pseudofs' NULL Pointer Dereference Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability

FreeBSD is prone to a local privilege-escalation vulnerability due to a NULL-pointer dereference condition that occurs in the 'pseudofs' filesystem.

Local attackers can exploit this issue to gain elevated privileges. Successful exploits will result in the complete compromise of affected computers.
