Oracle Linux 3 / 4 : samba (ELSA-2007-0060)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 67446


The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0060 :

Updated samba packages that fix a denial of service vulnerability are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

Samba provides file and printer sharing services to SMB/CIFS clients.

A denial of service flaw was found in Samba's smbd daemon process. An authenticated user could send a specially crafted request which would cause a smbd child process to enter an infinite loop condition. By opening multiple CIFS sessions, an attacker could exhaust system resources. (CVE-2007-0452)

Users of Samba should update to these packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.


Update the affected samba packages.
