Rump (Runnable Userspace Meta Program) is a mechanism for running kernel code as part of a user program's address space. As opposed to executing system calls for requesting kernel services, rump programs do a library call into the kernel code for equivalent functionality. Kernel code is simply recompiled as a userspace shared library from the kernel sources instead of being rewritten, so services imitate the same services being provided by the kernel. Select architectures such as i386 and amd64 also support directly linking binary kernel modules against rump programs.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
