New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated samba packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Information leak vulnerability in the VFS code, allowing an authenticated user to retrieve eight bytes of uninitialized memory when shadow copy is enabled (CVE-2014-0178).

Samba versions before 3.6.24, 4.0.19, and 4.1.9 are vulnerable to a denial of service on the nmbd NetBIOS name services daemon. A malformed packet can cause the nmbd server to loop the CPU and prevent any further NetBIOS name service (CVE-2014-0244).

Samba versions before 3.6.24, 4.0.19, and 4.1.9 are affected by a denial of service crash involving overwriting memory on an authenticated connection to the smbd file server (CVE-2014-3493).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
