|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: nfs-utils: Information disclosure (GLSA 201412-02)
Date: December 08, 2014
A vulnerability in nfs-utils might allow remote attackers to gain
access to restricted information.
nfs-utils contains the client and daemon implementations for the NFS
Vulnerable: < 1.2.8
Unaffected: >= 1.2.8
Architectures: All supported architectures
rpc.gssd in nfs-utils is vulnerable to DNS spoofing due to it depending
on PTR resolution for GSSAPI authentication, allowing for data to be
submitted to a malicious server without the knowledge of the user.
A remote attacker may be able to obtain sensitive information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All nfs-utils users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/nfs-utils-1.2.8"
