Resolution ========== Upgrade to 1.0.1-3. # pacman -Syu "libtirpc>=1.0.1-3" The problem has been fixed upstream but no release is available yet. Workaround ========== None. Description =========== It was found that libtirpc and libntirpc fails to free a buffer allocated for parsing XDR blocks when parsing fails due to insufficient input data being available.
