Description

In the past, rpc.statd posted SM_NOTIFY requests using the same socket it used for sending downcalls to the kernel. To receive replies from remote hosts, the socket was bound to INADDR_ANY. To prevent unwanted data injection, bind this socket to the loopback address.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
