Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : nfs-utils (MDKSA-2003:076)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 14059
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAn off-by-one buffer overflow was found in the logging code in nfs-utils when adding a newline to the string being logged. This could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a DoS (Denial of Service) on the server by sending certain RPC requests.
SolutionUpdate the affected nfs-utils and / or nfs-utils-clients packages.
