Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : nfs-utils (MDKSA-2005:005)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 16135


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


Arjan van de Ven discovered a buffer overflow in rquotad on 64bit architectures; an improper integer conversion could lead to a buffer overflow. An attacker with access to an NFS share could send a specially crafted request which could then lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

The updated packages are provided to prevent this issue.


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