Title   : rpcbind Invalid portmap Request Causes Denial of Service
Vendor  : SCO
URL     : www.sco.com
Product : UnixWare 7.x (and maybe other versions)
Severity: Moderate
Local   : Possible

================================================================================

1. Summary

When the UnixWare 7.x version of the RPC portmapper(rpcbind) receives an invalid
portmap request from a remote (or local) host, it falls into a denial of service
state and cannot respond.

2. Vulnerability Description

When the UnixWare 7.x version of the RPC portmapper(rpcbind) receives a number of
invalid portmap requests, it falls into a denial of service state and does not
respond to normal RPC portmap requests.
rpcbind maps each RPC service to the corresponding port for remote(or local) RPC
service requests. Therefore, when rpcbind falls into a denial of service state,
the port mapping does not operate normally and will cause most RPC services to be
unusable.

3. Impact

The RPC services will not operate normally.

4. Remedy

SCO will be releasing the advisory and fix: SCOSA-2005.31.
