Samba < 3.0.28 send_mailslot Function Remote Buffer Overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 29253
The remote Samba server may be affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
According to its banner, the version of the Samba server on the remote host is reportedly affected by a boundary error in 'nmbd' within the 'send_mailslot' function. Provided the 'domain logons' option is enabled in 'smb.conf', an attacker can leverage this issue to produce a stack-based buffer overflow using a 'SAMLOGON' domain logon packet in which the username string is placed at an odd offset and is followed by a long 'GETDC' string. Note that Nessus has not actually tried to exploit this issue nor verify whether the 'domain logons' option has been enabled on the remote host.
