openSUSE Security Update : udisks (openSUSE-SU-2014:0389-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 75297


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


udisks was updated to fix a buffer overflow in mount path parsing.

If users have the possibility to create very long mount points, such as with FUSE, they could cause udisksd to crash, or even to run arbitrary code as root with specially crafted mount paths.
(bnc#865854, CVE-2014-0004)


Update the affected udisks packages.
