Ubuntu 14.10 : mountall vulnerability (USN-2411-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 79333
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionSaurav Sengupta discovered that mountall incorrectly handled umask when calling the mount utility, resulting in certain filesystems possibly being mounted with incorrect permissions.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected mountall package.
