The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
It was discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) did
not protect against being opened in a web page frame. A remote
attacker could possibly use this flaw to conduct a clickjacking attack
against SWAT users or users with an active SWAT session.
A flaw was found in the Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) protection
mechanism implemented in SWAT. An attacker with the knowledge of a
victim's password could use this flaw to bypass CSRF protections and
conduct a CSRF attack against the victim SWAT user. (CVE-2013-0214)
An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Samba handled an
Extended Attribute (EA) list provided by a client. A malicious client
could send a specially crafted EA list that triggered an overflow,
causing the server to loop and reprocess the list using an excessive
amount of memory. (CVE-2013-4124)
Note: This issue did not affect the default configuration of the Samba
After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted
