    Date 08 Dec 2004

    Posted By Joe Shakespeare
    SGI has discovered that rpc.statd from the nfs-utils package, the Network Status Monitor, did not ignore the "SIGPIPE". Hence, a client prematurely terminating the TCP connection could also terminate the server process.

    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1014
    
    SGI has discovered that rpc.statd from the nfs-utils package, the
    Network Status Monitor, did not ignore the "SIGPIPE".  Hence, a client
    prematurely terminating the TCP connection could also terminate the
    server process.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0-2woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nfs-utils package.
