Updated augeas packages fix security vulnerabilities :
Multiple flaws were found in the way Augeas handled configuration
files when updating them. An application using Augeas to update
configuration files in a directory that is writable to by a different
user (for example, an application running as root that is updating
files in a directory owned by a non-root service user) could have been
tricked into overwriting arbitrary files or leaking information via a
symbolic link or mount point attack (CVE-2012-0786, CVE-2012-0787).
A flaw was found in the way Augeas handled certain umask settings when
creating new configuration files. This flaw could result in
configuration files being created as world-writable, allowing
unprivileged local users to modify their content (CVE-2013-6412).
