 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2008:208-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : pam_mount
 Date    : October 18, 2008
 Affected: 2008.1
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 pam_mount 0.10 through 0.45, when luserconf is enabled, does not verify
 mountpoint and source ownership before mounting a user-defined volume,
 which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via
 a local mount.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to fix the issue.

 Update:

 The fix for CVE-2008-3970 uncovered crashes in the code handling the
 'allow', 'deny', and 'require' options in pam_mount-0.33, released
 for Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring. Also, the verification of the allowed
 mount options ('allow' configuration directive) was inverted in
 pam_mount-0.33.
 
 This update fixes these issues.
