Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : samba (MDVSA-2010:090-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

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.

Update :

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.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.4
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.8
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
