Name        : fuse
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.7.0
Release     : 5.fc7
URL         : http://fuse.sf.net
Summary     : File System in Userspace (FUSE) utilities
Description :
With FUSE it is possible to implement a fully functional filesystem in a
userspace program. This package contains the FUSE userspace tools to
mount a FUSE filesystem.

Note: For security reasons only members of the group "fuse" are allowed to
(u)mount fuse filesystems. You can find more details on this issue in

Update Information:

It was discovered that members of the group fuse can get access to devices which they normally should not have access to. For ntfs-3g mounts, this was because /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g was setuid root.    This update fixes /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g so that it is no longer has the setuid bit enabled. The fuse package is also being updated to correct an error in the previous testing package which incorrectly changed the permissions on /dev/fuse.
