Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : samba (MDVSA-2012:055)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 58716
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability has been found and corrected in samba :
The RPC code generator in Samba 3.x before 3.4.16, 3.5.x before 3.5.14, and 3.6.x before 3.6.4 does not implement validation of an array length in a manner consistent with validation of array memory allocation, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted RPC call (CVE-2012-1182).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
