Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

It was discovered that FUSE would incorrectly follow symlinks when
checking mountpoints under certain conditions. A local attacker, with
access to use FUSE, could unmount arbitrary locations, leading to a
denial of service.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 3.3
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P)
