openSUSE Security Update : udisks2 (openSUSE-SU-2014:0388-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

udisks2 was updated to fix a buffer overflow in mount path parsing. If
users have the possibility to create very long mount points, such as
with FUSE, they could cause udisksd to crash, or even to run arbitrary
code as root with specially crafted mount paths. (bnc#865854,
CVE-2014-0004)
