"Are you vulnerable?
rpm -q wu-ftpdIf the results are anything earlier than 2.6.0-7, you need to upgrade immediately. Visit rpmfind and download the latest version of wu-ftpd (specific to your distribution, if necessary). The second check is for rpc.statd. This service is provided via nfs-utils and is a remote format string vulnerability. For this check, run the command:
rpm -q nfs-utilsIf you come up with anything earlier than 0.1.9.1-4, you need to upgrade. Run the same routine you used for wu-ftpd. The last step is to check LPRng. This utility handles remote printing in many Linux systems and like rpc.statd, has format string vulnerabilities (only it's user-defined). Run the command:
rpm -q LRPngIf you come up with anything earlier than 3.3.5-3, you'll need to upgrade the entire LPRng package set to the latest versions."
