Synopsis

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

Description

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in samba :

Integer overflow in the read_nttrans_ea_list function in nttrans.c in smbd in Samba 3.x before 3.5.22, 3.6.x before 3.6.17, and 4.x before 4.0.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a malformed packet (CVE-2013-4124).

The updated packages for Enterprise Server 5.2 has been patched to correct this issue.

The updated packages for Business Server 1 has been upgraded to the 3.6.17 version which resolves many upstream bugs and is not vulnerable to this issue. Additionally the libtevent packages are being provided which is a requirement since samba 3.6.16.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
