Description From 2005-11-23 16:24:01
Thomas Biege has reported a vulnerability in FUSE, which potentially can be  
exploited by malicious, local users to perform certain actions on a vulnerable  
system with escalated privileges.  
The vulnerability is caused due to "fusermount" failing to properly handle user  
supplied mountpoints that contain certain characters such as newline, tab, and  
backslash. This can be exploited to corrupt the "/etc/mtab" file and  
potentially allowing the attacker to set unauthorized mount options.  
Successful exploitation requires that "fusermount" is suid root.  
Update to version 2.4.2. 
p.s.: в gentoo уже убновились 
p.s.2: оно у нас не suid'ное :)
