Debian DLA-311-1 : rpcbind security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 86021


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


A use-after-free vulnerability in rpcbind causing remotely triggerable crash was found. Rpcbind crashes in svc_dodestroy when trying to free a corrupted xprt->xp_netid pointer, which contains a sockaddr_in.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected rpcbind package.
