Synopsis
========

A vulnerability has been found in Libtirpc and RPCBind which may allow
a remote attacker to cause a Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

The RPCBind utility is a server that converts RPC program numbers into
universal addresses.

Libtirpc is a port of Suns Transport-Independent RPC library to Linux.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-nds/rpcbind < 0.2.4-r >= 0.2.4-r
2 net-libs/libtirpc < 1.0.1-r1 >= 1.0.1-r1
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2 affected packages

Description
===========

It was found that due to the way RPCBind uses libtirpc (libntirpc), a
memory leak can occur when parsing specially crafted XDR messages.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send thousands of messages to RPCBind, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All RPCBind users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-nds/rpcbind-0.2.4-r"

All Libtirpc users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/libtirpc-1.0.1-r1"
