Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated nfs-utils package fixes security issue
Advisory ID: FLSA:152871
Issue date: 2005-05-12
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix
CVE Names: CAN-2004-1014
---------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

An updated nfs-utils package that fixes a security issue is now available.

The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and related tools, providing a much higher level of performance than the traditional Linux NFS server used by most users.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386

3. Problem description:

SGI reported that the statd daemon did not properly handle the SIGPIPE signal. A misconfigured or malicious peer could cause statd to crash, leading to a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1014 to this issue.

All users of nfs-utils should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to configure yum and apt-get.
