SuSE 10 Security Update : fuse (ZYPP Patch Number 7418)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57257
The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
The following security issues were fixed in fuse : - FUSE allowed local users to create mtab entries with arbitrary pathnames, and consequently unmount any filesystem, via a symlink attack on the parent directory of the mountpoint of a FUSE filesystem. (CVE-2010-3879) - Avoid mounting a directory including evaluation of symlinks, which might have allowed local attackers to mount filesystems anywhere in the system. (CVE-2011-0541) - Avoid symlink attacks on the mount point written in the mtab file. (CVE-2011-0543)
