NetBSD contains a flaw that may reduce the quality of random numbers used when encrypting data. The issue is triggered by incorrectly detecting the presence of Intel's 'pchb' random number generator when it is not in fact present. It is possible that the flaw may allow a reduction of quality of random data used by encryption mechanisms resulting in a loss of confidentiality.
