Scientific Linux Security Update : samba on SL5.x, SL4.x, SL3.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Various bugs were found in NDR parsing, used to decode MS-RPC requests
in Samba. A remote attacker could have sent carefully crafted requests
causing a heap overflow, which may have led to the ability to execute
arbitrary code on the server. (CVE-2007-2446)

Unescaped user input parameters were being passed as arguments to
/bin/sh. A remote, authenticated, user could have triggered this flaw
and executed arbitrary code on the server. Additionally on Scientific
Linux 5 this flaw could be triggered by a remote unauthenticated user
if Samba was configured to use the non-default 'username map script'
option. (CVE-2007-2447)
