Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libnfsidmap (MDKSA-2007:240)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 29298
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe NFSv4 ID mapper prior to 0.17 did not properly handle return values from the getpwnam_r() function when performing a username lookup, which could cause it to report a file as being owned by 'root' instead of 'nobody' if the file exists on the server but not the client.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
