'ypupdated -i' is running on this port.
ypupdated is part of NIS and allows a client to update NIS maps.
This old command execution vulnerability was discovered and fixed in
1995. However, it is still possible to run ypupdated in insecure
mode by adding the '-i' option.
Anybody can easily run commands as root on this machine by specifying
an invalid map name that starts with a pipe (|) character. Exploits
have been publicly available since the first advisory.
Remove the '-i' option.
If this option was not set, the rpc.ypupdated daemon is still vulnerable
to the old flaw
contact your vendor for a patch.
