Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:216: fuse

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the fuse package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:216 (fuse).



Thomas Beige found that fusermount failed to securely handle special characters
specified in mount points, which could permit a local attacker to corrupt the
contents of /etc/mtab by mounting over a maliciously-named directory using
fusermount. This could potentially permit the attacker to set unauthorized mount
options. This is only possible when fusermount is installed setuid root, which
is the case in Mandriva Linux. The updated packages have been patched to
address these problems.
