An information disclosure flaw was found in the way the mount command reported errors. A local attacker could use this flaw to determine the existence of files and directories they do not have access to (CVE-2013-0157).

Additionally for Mandriva Enterprise Server 5 a patch was added to support a new --no-canonicalize switch for mount to support the fix for CVE-2010-3879 in fuse.
