Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : samba (MDVSA-2010:090-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 46227


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.


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


Multiple vulnerabilies has been found and corrected in samba :

client/mount.cifs.c in mount.cifs in smbfs in Samba does not verify that the (1) device name and (2) mountpoint strings are composed of valid characters, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (mtab corruption) via a crafted string (CVE-2010-0547).

client/mount.cifs.c in mount.cifs in smbfs in Samba allows local users to mount a CIFS share on an arbitrary mountpoint, and gain privileges, via a symlink attack on the mountpoint directory file (CVE-2010-0787).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Update :

It was discovered that the previous Samba update required libtalloc from Samba4 package. Therefore, this update provides the required packages in order to fix the issue.


Update the affected packages.
