 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in fuse:
 
 FUSE, possibly 2.8.5 and earlier, allows local users to create
 mtab entries with arbitrary pathnames, and consequently unmount
 any filesystem, via a symlink attack on the parent directory of
 the mountpoint of a FUSE filesystem, a different vulnerability than
 CVE-2010-0789 (CVE-2010-3879).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
