Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Yoshihiro Ishikawa discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool
(SWAT) was vulnerable to cross-site request forgeries (CSRF). If a
Samba administrator were tricked into clicking a link on a specially
crafted web page, an attacker could trigger commands that could modify
the Samba configuration. (CVE-2011-2522)

Nobuhiro Tsuji discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool
(SWAT) did not properly sanitize its input when processing password
change requests, resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerabilities. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user
were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server
request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents,
or steal confidential data, within the same domain. (CVE-2011-2694).

Solution :

Update the affected swat package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
