Ubuntu 8.04 LTS : samba vulnerability (USN-1374-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 58131


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


Andy 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.


Update the affected samba package.
