SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis updates the cifs-utils package to version 5.4, which contains a number of bugfixes and enhancements. Highlights include :
- mount.cifs now supports the -s option by passing 'sloppy' to the kernel in the options string
- cifs.upcall now properly respects the domain_realm section in krb5.conf
- unprivileged users can no longer mount onto dirs into which they can't chdir (fixes CVE-2012-1586)
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 cifs-utils package.
