Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-434: redhat-config-nfs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the redhat-config-nfs package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running a version of the redhat-config-nfs package which is
older than redhat-config-nfs-1.0.13-6.

The redhat-config-nfs package includes a graphical user interface for
creating, modifying, and deleting nfs shares.

John Buswell discovered a flaw in redhat-config-nfs that could lead to
incorrect permissions on exported shares when exporting to multiple
hosts. This could cause an option such as "all_squash" to not be
applied to all of the listed hosts. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project ( has assigned the name CVE-2004-0750 to
this issue.

Additionally, a bug was found that prevented redhat-config-nfs from being
run if hosts didn't have options set in /etc/exports.

All users of redhat-config-nfs are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages as well as checking their NFS shares directly or via the
/etc/exports file for any incorrectly set options.
