Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-08
(nfs-utils: Multiple remote vulnerabilities)

Arjan van de Ven has discovered a buffer overflow on 64-bit
architectures in 'rquota_server.c' of nfs-utils (CAN-2004-0946). A
remotely exploitable flaw on all architectures also exists in the
'statd.c' file of nfs-utils (CAN-2004-1014), which can be triggered by
a mishandled SIGPIPE.

Impact :

A remote attacker could potentially cause a Denial of Service, or
even execute arbitrary code (64-bit architectures only) on a remote NFS
server.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All nfs-utils users should upgarde to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-fs/nfs-utils-1.0.6-r6'

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
