New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Two local vulnerabilities have been discovered in samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2009-3297 Ronald Volgers discovered that a race condition in mount.cifs allows local users to mount remote filesystems over arbitrary mount points.

- CVE-2010-0547 Jeff Layton discovered that missing input sanitising in mount.cifs allows denial of service by corrupting /etc/mtab.

Solution

Upgrade the samba packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 2:3.2.5-4lenny9.
