Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2428-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: The NFSv2 and NFSv3 server implementations in the Linux kernel through 4.10.13 lacked certain checks for the end of a buffer. A remote attacker could trigger a pointer-arithmetic error or possibly cause other unspecified impacts using crafted requests related to fs/nfsd/nfs3xdr.c and fs/nfsd/nfsxdr.c.
