Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:146: nfs-utils

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the nfs-utils package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:146 (nfs-utils).



SGI developers discovered a remote DoS (Denial of Service) condition in the NFS
statd server. rpc.statd did not ignore the 'SIGPIPE' signal which would cause
it to shutdown if a misconfigured or malicious peer terminated the TCP
connection prematurely.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
