The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Multiple vulnerabilies has been found and corrected in samba :
client/mount.cifs.c in mount.cifs in smbfs in Samba does not verify
that the (1) device name and (2) mountpoint strings are composed of
valid characters, which allows local users to cause a denial of
service (mtab corruption) via a crafted string (CVE-2010-0547).
client/mount.cifs.c in mount.cifs in smbfs in Samba allows local users
to mount a CIFS share on an arbitrary mountpoint, and gain privileges,
via a symlink attack on the mountpoint directory file (CVE-2010-0787).
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
It was discovered that the previous Samba update required libtalloc
from Samba4 package. Therefore, this update provides the required
packages in order to fix the issue.
Update the affected packages.
