Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1395-01 - This package contains a new implementation of the original libtirpc, transport-independent RPC library for NFS-Ganesha. Security Fix: It was found that due to the way rpcbind uses libtirpc, a memory leak can occur when parsing specially crafted XDR messages. An attacker sending thousands of messages to rpcbind could cause its memory usage to grow without bound, eventually causing it to be terminated by the OOM killer.
