RHSA-2004-434: redhat-config-nfs Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the redhat-config-nfs package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is running a version of the redhat-config-nfs package which is
older than redhat-config-nfs-1.0.13-6.
The redhat-config-nfs package includes a graphical user interface for
creating, modifying, and deleting nfs shares.
John Buswell discovered a flaw in redhat-config-nfs that could lead to
incorrect permissions on exported shares when exporting to multiple
hosts. This could cause an option such as "all_squash" to not be
applied to all of the listed hosts. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0750 to
Additionally, a bug was found that prevented redhat-config-nfs from being
run if hosts didn't have options set in /etc/exports.
All users of redhat-config-nfs are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages as well as checking their NFS shares directly or via the
/etc/exports file for any incorrectly set options.
