1. Problem Description

  The rpc.nfsd which is part of the nfs-server package was found to have
  two remote vulnerabilities.

2. Impact

  Via a buffer overflow, remote root access can be achieved. Write access to
  the local filesystem which is exported is necessary.
  Another security problem are improper root_sqash export handlings.
