NFS Denial of Service advisory from Sun
From: "m g" <mg_outlaw () hotmail com>

Hello all,

Today, Sun released an advisory (47815) about how the lockd can be used to cause a DoS of NFS. However they did not provide any details about how the lockd can be killed to trigger this. See http://sunsolve.sun.com/pub-cgi/retrieve.pl?doc=fsalert%2F47815&zone_32=category%3Asecurity

Does anyone know if this security issue is somehow related to the Bugtraq posting from Mike Murray about lockd and nfs on Linux from June 2000, see:

I currently don't have a Sun box available to test it myself, so perhaps someone else can verify this or provide me information about this.
