Fedora Core 1 : samba-3.0.6-2.FC1 (2004-284)

High Nessus Plugin ID 14642


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


- Wed Aug 25 2004 Jay Fenlason <fenlason at redhat.com> 3.0.6-1.FC2

- Upgrade to 3.0.6 include the following patches:
samba-3.0.5rc1-passwd.patch from me. This changes the character used in the password field of the entries generated by winbind from a 'x' to a '*'. 'x' means something special ('password is in /etc/shadow') to another pam module.
samba-3.0.5pre1-smbclient-kerberos.patch from Alexander Larsson (alexl at redhat.com). Make kerberized smbclient work better. samba-3.0.5pre1-use_authtok.patch from Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> Fix an apparent braino in pam_winbind.c and correct Cristian Gafton's name samba-3.0.6-schema.patch from Gerald (Jerry) Carter <jerry at samba.org> Correct the LDAP schema samba-3.0.5rc1-64bit-timestamps.patch from Ravikumar (rkumar at hp.com) to allow correct timestamp handling on 64-bit platforms and fix #126109.
samba-3.0.4-install.mount.smbfs.patch from Juanjo Villaplana (villapla at si.uji.es) to prevent building the srpm from trashing the installed /usr/bin/smbmount

- Thu May 20 2004 Jay Fenlason <fenlason at redhat.com> 3.0.4-2.FC1

- include -winbind patch from Gerald (Jerry) Carter (jerry at samba.org) https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1315 to make winbindd work against Windows versions that do not have 128 bit encryption enabled.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
