|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.
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.
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.
