This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Samba provides file and printer sharing services to SMB/CIFS clients.
A denial of service bug was found in the way the smbd daemon tracks
active connections to shares. It was possible for a remote attacker to
cause the smbd daemon to consume a large amount of system memory by
sending carefully crafted smb requests. (CVE-2006-3403)
Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue.
