Debian DSA-1368-1 : librpcsecgss - buffer overflow

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 26029


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


It was discovered that a buffer overflow of the library for secure RPC communication over the rpcsec_gss protocol allows the execution of arbitrary code.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain librpcsecgss.


Upgrade the librpcsecgss packages.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in version 0.14-2etch1.
