OpenBSD’s pf null pointer dereference

We have talked quite a few times about pf, OpenBSD’s Packet Filter (firewall). Well, a bug has been discovered which may trigger a kernel panic.

There exists a solution, be sure to patch your boxes asap. Notice that the ‘editing’ solution works on all platforms and versions (at least from 4.2 upwards and probably on older ones).
