Scientific Linux Security Update : samba on SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 60897
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA missing array boundary checking flaw was found in the way Samba parsed the binary representation of Windows security identifiers (SIDs). A malicious client could send a specially crafted SMB request to the Samba server, resulting in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the Samba server (smbd). (CVE-2010-3069)
After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
