Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : samba (MDKSA-2007:104-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A number of bugs were discovered in the NDR parsing support in Samba
that is used to decode MS-RPC requests. A remote attacker could send a
carefully crafted request that would cause a heap overflow, possibly
leading to the ability to execute arbitrary code on the server

A remote authenticated user could trigger a flaw where unescaped user
input parameters were being passed as arguments to /bin/sh

Finally, on Samba 3.0.23d and higher, when Samba translated SID
to/from name using the Samba local list of user and group accounts, a
logic error in smbd's internal security stack could result in a
transition to the root user id rather than the non-root user

Update :

The fix for CVE-2007-2444 broke the behaviour of force group when the
forced group is a local Unix group for domain member servers.

This update corrects that regression.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.7
Public Exploit Available : true
