One would assume that the release would be supported up until the EOL
provided on of May 31, 2008.

Yes, but whether a full upgrade is needed for "support" or not depends
on your definition. Given that FreeBSD is not vulnerable to these
issues in its default configuration, one could easily argue that an
upgrade for RELENG_5 isn't necessary.


The subject here is 9.3.4. All the issues raised
in this thread so far were addressed as of 9.3.2-P2
/ 9.3.3. To the best of my knowledge these have
already been addresed.

There are two new issue for 9.3.4.

CVE-2007-0494 which is only a problem if you are
doing DNSEC validation.

CVE-2007-0493 which any recursive 9.3.x (x<4) named
is vulnerable.
