The security advisory was about all versions 8.X pre 8.2.3-REL.

I used cvsup to update it.  If you're not interested in upgrading, your
whole system, there's probably a patch running around somewhere if you 
search the security advisories & lists.

I believe the port has also been updated (if you cvsup the ports).
