Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:053
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : util-linux
Date : March 6, 2007
Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Umount allows local users to trigger a NULL dereference and application
crash by invoking the program with a pathname for a USB pen drive that
was mounted and then physically removed, which might allow the users to
obtain sensitive information, including core file contents.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
