Samba < 2.2.8 Fragment Reassembly Overflow / Arbitrary File Overwrite

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow and an arbitrary file overwrite.

Description

The remote Samba server is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow when receiving specially crafted SMB/CIFS packets. To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to be able to access at least one share and send a specially formated packet which would execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

Solution

Upgrade to Samba 2.2.8
