Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 8 to 11.2 [Release 8.0 to 11.0]
All Platforms


 A security scanner run on a Solaris system reports:

Medium - MountdReserved: NFS mount daemon operating on a non-reserved port

The mountd daemon is running over a non-reserved port.  This daemon is probably vulnerable to port hijacking and should be moved to a reserved port.

The exact wording of the message depends on the security scanner product / vendor.
