The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Samba has been updated to fix a security problem :

CVE-2008-1105: Secunia research discovered vulnerability in Samba, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the 'receive_smb_raw()' function in lib/util_sock.c when parsing SMB packets. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via an overly large SMB packet received in a client context.


Update the affected cifs-mount packages.
