The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated redhat-config-nfs package that fixes bugs and potential
security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
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 (cve.mitre.org) 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.
