Rule Category

PROTOCOL-RPC -- Snort has detected traffic that may indicate the presence of the rpc protocol or vulnerabilities in the rpc protocol on the network.

Alert Message

PROTOCOL-RPC portmap proxy integer overflow attempt TCP

Rule Explanation

Integer overflow in the xdrmem_getbytes() function, and possibly other functions, of XDR (external data representation) libraries derived from SunRPC, including libnsl, libc, glibc, and dietlibc, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain integer values in length fields, a different vulnerability than CVE-2002-0391.
