Scientific Linux Security Update : samba on SL3.x, SL4.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 60412
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Samba clients handle over-sized packets. If a client connected to a malicious Samba server, it was possible to execute arbitrary code as the Samba client user. It was also possible for a remote user to send a specially crafted print request to a Samba server that could result in the server executing the vulnerable client code, resulting in arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the Samba server.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
