IBM AIX 'portmapper' Remote Denial of Service Vulnerability

AIX is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability.

Attackers can exploit this issue to hang computers that depend on NFS, NIS, or other subsystems that depend on 'portmapper', thus denying service to legitimate users.

AIX 5.3 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
