SuSE 10 Security Update : ncpfs (ZYPP Patch Number 7711)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57231
The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
Following issues are fixed by this update : - The ncpfs mount and umount programs were affected by the /etc/mtab truncation problems on RLIMIT_FSIZE. (CVE-2011-1679) - on errors, the mtab lock was not removed, blocking other applications from modifying /etc/mtab. (CVE-2011-1680) - we now keep the connection socket alive to avoid losing ncpfs mounts. (bnc#621810)
