Scientific Linux Security Update : samba on SL5.x i386
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 81477
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAn uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in the Samba daemon (smbd). A malicious Samba client could send specially crafted netlogon packets that, when processed by smbd, could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running smbd (by default, the root user). (CVE-2015-0240)
After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
