Synopsis
=======
A vulnerability in LinuxCIFS may allow a remote code execution via a
command line option.

Background
=========
The LinuxCIFS utils are a collection of tools for managing Linux CIFS
Client Filesystems.

Affected packages
================
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-fs/cifs-utils < 6.11 >= 6.11

Description
==========
The mount.cifs utility had a shell injection issue where one can embed
shell commands via the username mount option. Those commands will be
run via popen() in the context of the user calling mount.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could entice a user to use a specially crafted
argument using mount.cifs, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service
condition.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All LinuxCIFS users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/cifs-utils-6.11"
