Description

NFS servers running certain implementations of mountd, primarily Linux systems. On some systems, the vulnerable NFS server is enabled by default. This vulnerability can be exploited even if the NFS server does not share any file systems.

This vulnerability is specifically a buffer overflow in the mount daemons logging code which is supposed to log unauthorized mount attempts.

Solution(s)

  • nfs-mountd-0001

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
