Description Mark J. Cox 2006-03-10 05:12:07 EST
SUSE discovered a flaw in ACL handling in kernel nfsd; if a filesystem is
exported as read-only the remote user can still set ACLs and they migrate to the
server filesystem.

This issue did not affect the 2.6.9 kernel; however the nfsacl functionality was
introduced into Enterprise Linux 4 in Update 3.  Update 3 contains the patch to
correct this flaw applied to the nfs2acl.c file but it is missing from nfs3acl.c

Comment 7 Mike Gahagan 2006-07-14 16:58:11 EDT
Patch is in nfs3acl, wasn't able to reproduce the issue.
