Scientific Linux Security Update : samba4 on SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 77017
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in Samba's NetBIOS message block daemon (nmbd). An attacker on the local network could use this flaw to send specially crafted packets that, when processed by nmbd, could possibly lead to arbitrary code execution with root privileges.
After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
