Debian DLA-1724-1 : ntfs-3g security update

Description

A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in NTFS-3G, a read-write NTFS driver for FUSE. A local user can take advantage of this flaw for local root privilege escalation. For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1:2014.2.15AR.2-1+deb8u4. We recommend that you upgrade your ntfs-3g packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
