FreeBSD : Multiple Potential Buffer Overruns in Samba (2de14f7a-dad9-11d8-b59a-00061bc2ad93)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Evgeny Demidov discovered that the Samba server has a buffer overflow
in the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) on decoding Base64 data
during HTTP Basic Authentication. Versions 3.0.2 through 3.0.4 are
affected.

Another buffer overflow bug has been found in the code used to support
the 'mangling method = hash' smb.conf option. The default setting for
this parameter is 'mangling method = hash2' and therefore not
vulnerable. Versions between 2.2.0 through 2.2.9 and 3.0.0 through
3.0.4 are affected.
