    Several problems have been discovered in ecryptfs-utils, a cryptographic
    filesystem for Linux.
    
    CVE-2011-1831
    
      Vasiliy Kulikov of Openwall and Dan Rosenberg discovered that eCryptfs
      incorrectly validated permissions on the requested mountpoint. A local
      attacker could use this flaw to mount to arbitrary locations, leading
      to privilege escalation.
    
    CVE-2011-1832
    
      Vasiliy Kulikov of Openwall and Dan Rosenberg discovered that eCryptfs
      incorrectly validated permissions on the requested mountpoint. A local
      attacker could use this flaw to unmount to arbitrary locations, leading
      to a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2011-1834
    
      Dan Rosenberg and Marc Deslauriers discovered that eCryptfs incorrectly
      handled modifications to the mtab file when an error occurs. A local
      attacker could use this flaw to corrupt the mtab file, and possibly
      unmount arbitrary locations, leading to a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2011-1835
    
      Marc Deslauriers discovered that eCryptfs incorrectly handled keys when
      setting up an encrypted private directory. A local attacker could use
      this flaw to manipulate keys during creation of a new user.
    
    CVE-2011-1837
    
      Vasiliy Kulikov of Openwall discovered that eCryptfs incorrectly handled
      lock counters. A local attacker could use this flaw to possibly overwrite
      arbitrary files.
    
    We acknowledge the work of the Ubuntu distribution in preparing patches
    suitable for near-direct inclusion in the Debian package.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 68-1+lenny1.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 83-4+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 95-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ecryptfs-utils packages.
