The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
The following security issues were fixed in fuse :
- FUSE allowed local users to create mtab entries with
arbitrary pathnames, and consequently unmount any
filesystem, via a symlink attack on the parent directory
of the mountpoint of a FUSE filesystem. (CVE-2010-3879)
- Avoid mounting a directory including evaluation of
symlinks, which might have allowed local attackers to
mount filesystems anywhere in the system.
- Avoid symlink attacks on the mount point written in the
mtab file. (CVE-2011-0543)
