Ubuntu 4.10 : nfs-utils vulnerability (USN-36-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2004-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

SGI discovered a remote Denial of Service vulnerability in the NFS
statd server. statd did not ignore the 'SIGPIPE' signal which caused
it to shutdown if a misconfigured or malicious peer terminated the TCP
connection prematurely.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected nfs-common, nfs-kernel-server and / or nhfsstone
packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
