Thanks for the thought, Jerry.  To add to Lowell's assurance ..

If you followed the links in those vuln reports to the FreeBSD Security 
Advisories and source patches for all supported FreeBSD versions, that 
were applied prior to their announcement on 22nd August in (at least) 
the freebsd-security@ and freebsd-announce@ lists, you could have known 
a week sooner :)

Anyone running a FreeBSD system with possibly untrusted local users 
running multicast (in the case of CVE-2013-3077) or running servers 
using SCTP (in the case of CVE-2013-5209) would naturally have read 
these and have applied updates before the CERT advisories appeared.

cheers, Ian
