SuSE 11.1 Security Update : ecryptfs-utils (SAT Patch Number 6187)

High Nessus Plugin ID 64126


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.


ecryptfs-utils was updated to fix a security issue and some bugs.

Security issue fixed: mount.ecryptfs_private did not set correct group ownerships when it modifies mtab. (CVE-2011-3145)

Also some bugs that made this set of tools non-working were fixed.

You need to manually hand setuid root permissions to /sbin/mount.ecryptfs_private if you want to use it as a non-root user.
