Vulnerability Assessment Details

dmisd service

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks the presence of a RPC service

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

This service uses the function xdr_array() of the RPC library.
It turns out that some older versions of the RPC library
are vulnerable to an integer overflow in this function,
which could permit a possible hacker to gain root rights on
this host.

*** No security hole regarding this program has been tested, so
*** this might be a false positive.

Solution : We suggest that you disable this service.
