==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 11.04
- Ubuntu 10.10

Summary:

An attacker could trick cifs-utils into corrupting the system mtab file.

Software Description:
- cifs-utils: Common Internet File System utilities

Details:

Dan Rosenberg discovered that cifs-utils incorrectly handled changes to the
mtab file. A local attacker could use this issue to corrupt the mtab file,
possibly leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1678)

Jan Lieskovsky discovered that cifs-utils incorrectly filtered certain
strings being added to the mtab file. A local attacker could use this issue
to corrupt the mtab file, possibly leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2011-2724)

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
