Amazon Linux AMI : rpcbind (ALAS-2017-841)
High Nessus Plugin ID 100642
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was found that due to the way rpcbind uses libtirpc (libntirpc), a memory
leak can occur when parsing specially crafted XDR messages. An attacker sending
thousands of messages to rpcbind could cause its memory usage to grow without
bound, eventually causing it to be terminated by the OOM killer.
SolutionRun 'yum update rpcbind' to update your system.
