Description Petr Matousek 2011-08-16 20:14:32 UTC
Vasiliy Kulikov of Openwall and Dan Rosenberg discovered that eCryptfs incorrectly validated permissions on the requested source directory. A local attacker could use this flaw to mount an arbitrary directory, possibly leading to information disclosure.

Upstream fix:
764355487ea220fdc2faf128d577d7f679b91f97
