Details

Dan Rosenberg discovered that FUSE did not correctly check mount
locations. A local attacker, with access to use FUSE, could unmount
arbitrary locations, leading to a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 6.06

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
