Description Gerhard Hintermayer 2019-11-26 10:01:46 UTC
before going to nfs-utils-2.4.1-r4 I ran into the follwing problem:
rpc.mountd always crashed after a few seconds with the following error message ( I have about 20 clients) :

rpc.mountd: nfsd_fh: inbuf ' 6 \x8f424d6d527342799abc1d30bed385cd'
*** stack smashing detected ***: <unknown> terminated

If I turned off all access in /etc/exports and rexported, I could start rpc.mountd without any issues, but of course without any access to the exported directories.

Today I checked by chance for a newer version, found 2.4.1-r4, gave it a try and - voila -no more stack smashing aborts any more.

I just filed the bug to possible help others that ran into the same error using the buggy version 2.4.1-r3.

Sorry for reporting as duplicate, now at the error is at least reported with *both* client and server error message ;-) - as all my clients dropped off I did'nt even think to check there as the problem was located @ server
