Ubuntu 8.04 LTS : samba vulnerability (USN-1374-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 58131
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionAndy Davis discovered that Samba incorrectly handled certain AndX offsets. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to the server and cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected samba package.
