Recently, a security problem with many rpc.mountd implementations was
reported on bugtraq which also affected the Linux UNFSD rpc.mountd.
An otherwise unauthorized client was able to get different error
codes depending on whether the file existed or not, allowing an
attacker to get an overview of installed software.

A fixed release of the Linux Universal NFS Server is now available
from ftp://ftp.mathematik.th-darmstadt.de/pub/linux/okir:
