Vulnerability Insight:
The fusermount binary calls setuid(geteuid()) to reset the RUID when it invokes /bin/mount so that it can use privileged mount options that are normally restricted if RUID != EUID. FUSE does not properly clear environment variables before invoking mount or umount as root allowing this to be passed to operations using elevated privileges such as LIBMOUNT_MTAB that is used by the mount commands debugging feature.

Update the affected packages to the latest available version.
