Debian Security Advisory DSA-1611-1 security@debian.org

Package : afuse
Vulnerability : privilege escalation
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-2232
Debian Bug : 490921

Anders Kaseorg discovered that afuse, an automounting file system
in user-space, did not properly escape meta characters in paths.
This allowed a local attacker with read access to the filesystem to
execute commands as the owner of the filesystem.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.1.1-1+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.2-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your afuse (0.1.1-1+etch1) package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
