Description

In libtirpc before 1.3.3rc1, remote attackers could exhaust the file descriptors of a process that uses libtirpc because idle TCP connections are mishandled. This can, in turn, lead to an svc_run infinite loop without accepting new connections.

Solution(s)

  • rocky-upgrade-libtirpc
  • rocky-upgrade-libtirpc-debuginfo
  • rocky-upgrade-libtirpc-debugsource
  • rocky-upgrade-libtirpc-devel
