Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 9.04 / 9.10 / 10.04 LTS : samba vulnerability (USN-987-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Andrew Bartlett discovered that Samba did not correctly validate the
length when parsing SIDs. A remote attacker could send a specially
crafted request to the server and cause a denial of service, or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Samba
service (smbd).

The default compiler options for Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and newer should
reduce the vulnerability to a denial of service.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.5
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
