[GLSA-200412-08] nfs-utils: Multiple remote vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
nfs-utils: Multiple remote vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-08
(nfs-utils: Multiple remote vulnerabilities)


Arjan van de Ven has discovered a buffer overflow on 64-bit
architectures in 'rquota_server.c' of nfs-utils (CVE-2004-0946). A
remotely exploitable flaw on all architectures also exists in the
'statd.c' file of nfs-utils (CVE-2004-1014), which can be triggered by
a mishandled SIGPIPE.

Impact

A remote attacker could potentially cause a Denial of Service, or
even execute arbitrary code (64-bit architectures only) on a remote NFS
server.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
