Description

The host_reliable_addrinfo function in support/export/hostname.c in nfs-utils before 1.2.4 does not properly use DNS to verify access to NFS exports, which allows remote attackers to mount filesystems by establishing crafted DNS A and PTR records.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-nfs-client
  • suse-upgrade-nfs-doc
  • suse-upgrade-nfs-kernel-server

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.
