Problem Description:

In rpcbind(8), netbuf structures are copied directly, which would result in two netbuf structures that reference to one shared address buffer. When one of the two netbuf structures is freed, access to the other netbuf structure would result in an undefined result that may crash the rpcbind(8) daemon.


A remote attacker who can send specifically crafted packets to the rpcbind(8) daemon can cause it to crash, resulting in a denial of service condition.
