Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:021

Affected versions:      7.0, 7.1

Problem Description:

A bug recently discovered in the nfs-utils package can theoretically be used for gaining remote root access. While there are currently no known exploits for this bug, we recommend upgrading to the latest version which fixes the bug.


Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this by running the md5sum program on the downloaded package by using "md5sum package.rpm".

To upgrade automatically, use « MandrakeUpdate ».

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".

You can download the updates directly from:
ftp://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates
ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates

Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:
http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory. For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/". Updated source RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two above-listed mirrors.
