Fedora 7 : fuse-2.7.0-5.fc7 / ntfs-3g-1.913-2.fc7 (2007-2295)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27764
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionIt was discovered that members of the group fuse can get access to devices which they normally should not have access to. For ntfs-3g mounts, this was because /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g was setuid root. This update fixes /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g so that it is no longer has the setuid bit enabled. The fuse package is also being updated to correct an error in the previous testing package which incorrectly changed the permissions on /dev/fuse.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
