NFS Vulnerability Overview

NFS is a service that allows users to access files on a remote server by name. It’s usually used for file sharing and remote file browsing. NFS can be used to exploit this vulnerability.
1) Remote attackers can exploit the vulnerability by sending specially crafted NFS packets to an affected system.
2) The malicious packets could cause a denial of service condition on the system.
3) The vulnerability could be exploited remotely without authentication, or with administrative privileges on the system.

Parts of the NFS Protocol Vulnerable to Buffer Overflow
