Package : nfs-utils
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific : no
CVE Ids : CAN-2003-0252

The logging code in nfs-utils contains an off-by-one buffer overrun when adding a newline to the string being logged. This vulnerability may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition by sending certain RPC requests.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.0-2woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.0.3-2.

We recommend that you update your nfs-utils package.
