Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This updates the cifs-utils package to version 5.4, which contains a
number of bugfixes and enhancements. Highlights include :

- mount.cifs now supports the -s option by passing
'sloppy' to the kernel in the options string

- cifs.upcall now properly respects the domain_realm
section in krb5.conf

- unprivileged users can no longer mount onto dirs into
which they can't chdir (fixes CVE-2012-1586)

- the cifscreds, getcifsacl and setcifsacl programs have
been added to the package

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