Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-207: nfs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the nfs packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated nfs-utils packages are available that fix a remotely exploitable
Denial of Service vulnerability.

The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and
related tools.

Janusz Niewiadomski found a buffer overflow bug in nfs-utils version 1.0.3
and earlier. This bug could be exploited by a possible hacker, causing a remote
Denial of Service (crash). It is not believed that this bug could lead to
remote arbitrary code execution.

Users are advised to update to these erratum packages, which contain a
backported security patch supplied by the nfs-utils maintainers and are not
vulnerable to this issue.
