Handling of filesystem driver issues caused by malicious filesystem images
This document (000021195) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
As a general precaution we advise users not to mount filesystems from untrusted sources. If there is a need to access untrusted filesystem image, there is an option to access the filesystem image using FUSE filesystem driver (e.g. using grub2-mount utility) where the filesystem image is parsed by the userspace daemon which is much easier to securely contain and thus limit the impact of potential security vulnerabilities.
