 Affected: 2010.1, 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in cifs-utils:
 
 A file existence dislosure flaw was found in the way mount.cifs tool
 of the Samba SMB/CIFS tools suite performed mount of a Linux CIFS
 (Common Internet File System) filesystem. A local user, able to
 mount a remote CIFS share / target to a local directory could use
 this flaw to confirm (non) existence of a file system object (file,
 directory or process descriptor) via error messages generated during
 the mount.cifs tool run (CVE-2012-1586).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
