GLSA-200712-10 : Samba: Execution of arbitrary code

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

Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200712-10
(Samba: Execution of arbitrary code)

Alin Rad Pop (Secunia Research) discovered a boundary checking error in
the send_mailslot() function which could lead to a stack-based buffer

Impact :

A remote attacker could send a specially crafted 'SAMLOGON' domain
logon packet, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with
elevated privileges. Note that this vulnerability is exploitable only
when domain logon support is enabled in Samba, which is not the case in
Gentoo's default configuration.

Workaround :

Disable domain logon in Samba by setting 'domain logons = no' in
the 'global' section of your smb.conf and restart Samba.

Solution :

All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-fs/samba-3.0.28'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 7.3
Public Exploit Available : true
