Subject: CVE Request for ZFS on Linux


This was "discovered" yesterday.

As outlined here, there is a security issue in the Debian packages for
zfsonlinux which will export NFS shares to * when you only intend for

Some notes:
-> Debian packages for zfsonlinux were using extra patches for NFS,
iSCSI and other shares not present in upstream zfsonlinux
-> These patches were included by the maintainer of the Debian packages
against upstream's wishes

NFS users who are exporting host-specific shares from
CentOS/FreeBSD/illumos who switch to Debian will certainly be surprised
to find their NFS shares are wide open.

Can we have a CVE for tracking this, as it's a unique issue which has
apparently been in the Debian packages for some time now.

No other zfsonlinux distribution suffers these issues.
