Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 / 7.10 : samba vulnerabilities (USN-544-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Samba developers discovered that nmbd could be made to overrun a
buffer during the processing of GETDC logon server requests. When
samba is configured as a Primary or Backup Domain Controller, a remote
attacker could send malicious logon requests and possibly cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2007-4572)

Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research discovered that nmbd did not properly
check the length of netbios packets. When samba is configured as a
WINS server, a remote attacker could send multiple crafted requests
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with root privileges.
(CVE-2007-5398).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
