Slackware 10.0 / 10.1 / 10.2 / 11.0 / 12.0 / 12.1 / current : samba (SSA:2008-149-01)

High Nessus Plugin ID 32455


The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.


New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, and -current to fix a security issue: 'Specifically crafted SMB responses can result in a heap overflow in the Samba client code. Because the server process, smbd, can itself act as a client during operations such as printer notification and domain authentication, this issue affects both Samba client and server installations.' This flaw affects Samba versions from 3.0.0 through 3.0.29.


Update the affected samba package.
