The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
A vulnerability has been found and corrected in cifs-utils :
A file existence dislosure flaw was found in the way mount.cifs tool
of the Samba SMB/CIFS tools suite performed mount of a Linux CIFS
(Common Internet File System) filesystem. A local user, able to mount
a remote CIFS share / target to a local directory could use this flaw
to confirm (non) existence of a file system object (file, directory or
process descriptor) via error messages generated during the mount.cifs
tool run (CVE-2012-1586).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
