The Linux kernel allows a local attacker to mount a remote file system on a vulnerable Linux host and modify files

Are they talking NFS here? If so I would have to assume to be exploited that you would have to:

A) have NFS related kernel modules loaded B) have NFS related services running C) not have a firewall running and blocking NFS related ports D) have directories exported

Does anyone know any more specifics on this? I hate it when articles are so vague.

The advisory is not so new. It is a couple of weeks old, IIRC. (sorry, no time to search for it)
