Title: RPCBind: Denial of Service (GLSA 201611-17)
Date: November 22, 2016
A buffer overflow in RPCBind might allow remote attackers to cause
a Denial of Service.
The RPCBind utility is a server that converts RPC program numbers into
Vulnerable: < 0.2.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.2.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in RPCBind’s
svc_dodestroy function when trying to free a corrupted xprt->xp_netid
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All RPCBind users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-nds/rpcbind-0.2.3-r1"
