Fixed In Version: Linux kernel 5.14-rc1
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the hanging of mounts in the Linux kernel's NFS4 subsystem where remote servers are unreachable for the client during migration of data from one server to another (during trunking detection). This flaw allows a remote NFS4 server (if the client is connected) to starve the resources, causing a denial of service. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.

Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-08-10 20:27:24 UTC
fs/nfs/nfs4client.c in the NFS4 subsystem of the Linux kernel before 5.13.4 has incorrect connection-setup ordering, which allows remote NFSv4 servers to cause a denial of service (hanging of mounts) by arranging for those servers to be unreachable during trunking detection.
