Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : samba (MDKSA-2007:244)

High Nessus Plugin ID 29342

Synopsis

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

Description

Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in how Samba authenticates remote users. A remote unauthenticated user could trigger this flaw to cause the Samba server to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the Samba server.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
