Title:RedHat Update for libtirpc RHSA-2013:0884-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'libtirpc'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'libtirpc'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
These packages provide a transport-independent RPC (remote procedure call)

A flaw was found in the way libtirpc decoded RPC requests. A
specially-crafted RPC request could cause libtirpc to attempt to free a
buffer provided by an application using the library, even when the buffer
was not dynamically allocated. This could cause an application using
libtirpc, such as rpcbind, to crash. (CVE-2013-1950)

Red Hat would like to thank Michael Armstrong for reporting this issue.

Users of libtirpc should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications using
libtirpc must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
libtirpc on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
