The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
Thomas Beige found that fusermount failed to securely handle special
characters specified in mount points, which could allow a local
attacker to corrupt the contents of /etc/mtab by mounting over a
maliciously-named directory using fusermount. This could potentially
allow 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.
Update the affected packages.
