The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
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
Janusz Niewiadomski found a buffer overflow bug in nfs-utils version
1.0.3 and earlier. This bug could be exploited by an attacker, 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.
