Description

This update for coreutils provides the following fixes :

  • Fix memory handling error with case insensitive sort using UTF-8. (CVE-2015-4041, CVE-2015-4042)

  • Ensure 'df -a' shows all remote file system entries.

  • Only suppress remote mounts of separate exports with 'df --total'.

  • Document that 'df -a' might list duplicated file systems.

  • Adjust references to info nodes in man pages.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
