Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

SGI developers discovered a remote DoS (Denial of Service) condition
in the NFS statd server. rpc.statd did not ignore the 'SIGPIPE' signal
which would cause it to shutdown if a misconfigured or malicious peer
terminated the TCP connection prematurely.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.

Solution :

Update the affected nfs-utils and / or nfs-utils-clients packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
