|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.
