Fedora 14 : cifs-utils-4.8.1-6.fc14 (2011-9269)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 55658


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes an issue where /etc/mtab could be left in a corrupt state after mounting.

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.


Update the affected cifs-utils package.
