    In the nfs-utils package, providing support files for Network File
    System (NFS) including the rpc.statd daemon, the directory
    /var/lib/nfs is owned by statd:nogroup.  This directory contains files
    owned and managed by root.  If statd is compromised, it can therefore
    trick processes running with root privileges into creating/overwriting
    files anywhere on the system.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.2.8-9+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nfs-utils packages.
