Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

USN-460-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in Samba. The upstream changes
for CVE-2007-2444 had an unexpected side-effect in Feisty. Shares
configured with the 'force group' option no longer behaved correctly.
This update corrects the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Paul Griffith and Andrew Hogue discovered that Samba did not fully
drop root privileges while translating SIDs. A remote authenticated
user could issue SMB operations during a small window of opportunity
and gain root privileges. (CVE-2007-2444).

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
