This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in samba :

The RPC code generator in Samba 3.x before 3.4.16, 3.5.x before
3.5.14, and 3.6.x before 3.6.4 does not implement validation of an
array length in a manner consistent with validation of array memory
allocation, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
via a crafted RPC call (CVE-2012-1182).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
