Scientific Linux Security Update : samba and samba3x on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64 (20131210)

high Nessus Plugin ID 71341
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the DCE-RPC client code in Samba. A specially crafted DCE-RPC packet could cause various Samba programs to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when parsed. A malicious or compromised Active Directory Domain Controller could use this flaw to compromise the winbindd daemon running with root privileges. (CVE-2013-4408)

A flaw was found in the way Samba performed ACL checks on alternate file and directory data streams. An attacker able to access a CIFS share with alternate stream support enabled could access alternate data streams regardless of the underlying file or directory ACL permissions. (CVE-2013-4475)

After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
