codes. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to intercept
protocol traffic between FUSE and the kernel. (CVE-2022-30783)

It was discovered that NTFS-3G incorrectly handled certain NTFS disk
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into mounting a
specially crafted disk image, a remote attacker could use this issue to
