EncFS before 1.7.0 encrypts multiple blocks by means of the CFB cipher
mode with the same initialization vector, which makes it easier for
local users to obtain sensitive information via calculations involving
recovery of XORed data, as demonstrated by an attack on encrypted data
in which the last block contains only one byte.
