Mandriva Linux Advisory MDKA-2007:120
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : util-linux-ng
Date : November 23, 2007
Affected: 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The mount program failed to mount Samba mountpoints if the path of
the Samba share existed on the local system. When calling mount -t
smbfs //foo/bar /mnt/foo, mount.smbfs would be called with /foo/bar
if /foo/bar existed locally, and would display its usage.

This update package fixes the issue.
