Synopsis: Moderate: util-linux security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: SLSA-2017:0907-1
Issue Date: 2017-04-12
CVE Numbers: CVE-2017-2616
* A race condition was found in the way su handled the management of child
processes. A local authenticated attacker could use this flaw to kill
other processes with root privileges under specific conditions.
* The “findmnt –target ” command prints all file systems where the
mount point directory is . Previously, when used in the chroot
environment, “findmnt –target ” incorrectly displayed all mount
points. The command has been fixed so that it now checks the mount point
path and returns information only for the relevant mount point.
