SuSE9 Security Update : Samba (YOU Patch Number 12595)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

With enabled 'wide links' samba follows symbolic links on the server
side, therefore allowing clients to overwrite arbitrary files
(CVE-2010-0926). This update changes the default setting to have 'wide
links' disabled by default. The new default only works if 'wide links'
is not set explicitly in smb.conf.

Due to a race condition in mount.cifs a local attacker could corrupt
/etc/mtab if mount.cifs is installed setuid root. mount.cifs is not
setuid root by default and it's not recommended to change that.
