All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in nfs-utils that could lead
to a Denial of Service, or the execution of arbitrary code.
nfs-utils is a package containing the client and daemon
implementations for the NFS protocol.
Arjan van de Ven has discovered a buffer overflow on 64-bit
architectures in 'rquota_server.c' of nfs-utils (CAN-2004-0946). A
remotely exploitable flaw on all architectures also exists in the
'statd.c' file of nfs-utils (CAN-2004-1014), which can be triggered by
a mishandled SIGPIPE.
A remote attacker could potentially cause a Denial of Service, or
even execute arbitrary code (64-bit architectures only) on a remote NFS
There is no known workaround at this time.
All nfs-utils users should upgarde to the latest version:
Code Listing 3.1: Resolution
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/nfs-utils-1.0.6-r6"
