Description

An updated redhat-config-nfs package that fixes bugs and potential security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

The redhat-config-nfs package includes a graphical user interface for creating, modifying, and deleting nfs shares. John Buswell discovered a flaw in redhat-config-nfs that could lead to incorrect permissions on exported shares when exporting to multiple hosts. This could cause an option such as "all_squash" to not be applied to all of the listed hosts. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0750 to this issue. Additionally, a bug was found that prevented redhat-config-nfs from being run if hosts didn't have options set in /etc/exports. All users of redhat-config-nfs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages as well as checking their NFS shares directly or via the /etc/exports file for any incorrectly set options.
