DESCRIPTION:
Multiple security issues have been reported in eCryptfs, which can be
exploited by malicious, local users to disclose potentially sensitive
information, bypass certain security restrictions, manipulate certain
data, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), and potentially gain escalated
privileges.

1) Insufficient permission checks when mounting a mountpoint can be
exploited to mount arbitrary locations.

2) Insufficient permission checks when unmounting a mountpoint can be
exploited to unmount arbitrary locations.

3) Insufficient validation of the mount source directory can be
exploited to mount an arbitrary directory.

4) Incorrect error handling when modifying the mtab file can be
exploited to corrupt the mtab file and potentially unmount arbitrary
locations.

5) Keys are not properly handled when setting up new encrypted
directories, which can be exploited to manipulate keys when creating
a new user.

6) Incorrect permission handling during the recovery process can be
exploited to e.g. access another user's data.

7) An error exists when handling lock counters, which can be
exploited to overwrite arbitrary files.

SOLUTION:
Restrict access to trusted users only.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
1, 2, 3) Vasiliy Kulikov and Dan Rosenberg
4) Dan Rosenberg and Marc Deslauriers
