The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated nfs-utils package that fixes various security issues is now
The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and
SGI reported that the statd daemon did not properly handle the SIGPIPE
signal. A misconfigured or malicious peer could cause statd to crash,
leading to a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-1014
to this issue.
Arjan van de Ven discovered a buffer overflow in rquotad. On 64-bit
architectures, an improper integer conversion can lead to a buffer
overflow. An attacker with access to an NFS share could send a
specially crafted request which could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0946 to this issue.
All users of nfs-utils should upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves these issues.
