FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- rpcbind(8) remote denial of service [REVISED] (0e5d6969-600a-11e6-a6c3-14dae9d210b8)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

In rpcbind(8), netbuf structures are copied directly, which would
result in two netbuf structures that reference to one shared address
buffer. When one of the two netbuf structures is freed, access to the
other netbuf structure would result in an undefined result that may
crash the rpcbind(8) daemon. Impact : A remote attacker who can send
specifically crafted packets to the rpcbind(8) daemon can cause it to
crash, resulting in a denial of service condition.
