Description

An infinite loop vulnerability was found in libtirpc before version 1.0.2-rc2. With the port to using poll rather than select, exhaustion of file descriptors would cause the server to enter an infinite loop, consuming a large amount of CPU time and denying service to other clients until restarted.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libtirpc-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libtirpc1

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.
