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.

- 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)


Apply ZYPP patch number 7711.
