Description

Following issues are fixed by this update :

  • The ncpfs mount and umount programs were affected by the /etc/mtab truncation problems on RLIMIT_FSIZE. (CVE-2011-1679)

  • on errors, the mtab lock was not removed, blocking other applications from modifying /etc/mtab. (CVE-2011-1680)

  • we now keep the connection socket alive to avoid losing ncpfs mounts. (bnc#621810)
