An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.

Description:

This update for gvfs provides the following fix:

  • Up until very recently, the Android MTP driver did not do bounds checking on reads past EOF, leading to undefined behavior, which includes hanging the transfer on some devices. This behavior is prevented by enforcing POSIX semantics and truncating reads past EOF. (bsc#1069030).
