CVSS Base Vector:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'nfs-utils'
Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the DSA-1965-1 advisory.
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.
In the nfs-utils Linux Distribution 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.
'nfs-utils' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Debian Linux.
