Subject:		OpenLinux: Linux NFS utils package contains remotely exploitable off-by-one bug
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2003-037.0
Issue date: 		2003 November 17
Cross reference:	sr882699 fz528148 erg712382
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

	Janusz Niewiadomski has discovered an off-by-one overflow in
	xlog() in the nfs-utils package. It is rumoured this bug is
	exploitable, however as it writes a single zero byte to memory,
	an exploit may be difficult to write. 

	CAN-2003-0252 Off-by-one error in the xlog function of mountd 
	in the Linux NFS utils package (nfs-utils) before 1.0.4 allows 
	remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute 
	arbitrary code via certain RPC requests to mountd that do not 
	contain newlines.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package
	----------------------------------------------------------------------
	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to nfs-0.2.1-12.i386.rpm
					prior to nfs-lockd-0.2.1-12.i386.rpm
					prior to nfs-server-0.2.1-12.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation	prior to nfs-0.2.1-12.i386.rpm
					prior to nfs-lockd-0.2.1-12.i386.rpm
					prior to nfs-server-0.2.1-12.i386.rpm


3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
	customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
	cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
	packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
