FUSE Exploit Closed in All Ubuntu OSes
Canonical has published details about a FUSE vulnerability in its Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS operating systems. This is not a major issue, but that’s not a reason not to upgrade.
The FUSE package maintainers for Ubuntu have upgraded the library, and now a new patch is available through the regular channels. It looks like FUSE could have been made to overwrite files as the administrator.
