Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : util-linux (MDKSA-2007:198)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27071
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe mount and umount programs in util-linux called the setuid() and setgid() functions in the wrong order and did not check the return values, which could allow attackers to grain privileges via helper applications such as mount.nfs.
Updated packages have been patched to fix this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
