ELA-179-1 nfs-utils security update

insecure permissions

Related CVEs CVE-2019-3689

In the nfs-utils 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.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.6-4+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your nfs-utils packages.
