Description

Statd is the RPC NFS status daemon. It is used to communicate status information to other services or host.

The version of statd shipped with many unix implementations contains a buffer overflow condition. This overflow condition exists in the handling of 'SM_MON' RPC requests. Any attacker to successfully exploit this vulnerability would gain root privileges on the target host.

Solution(s)

  • nfs-statd-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.
