Samba < 3.0.8 Remote Wild Card DoS and QFILEPATHINFO Remote Overflow



The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote Samba server, according to its version number, may be vulnerable to a remote Denial Of Service vulnerability and a remote buffer overflow. The Wild Card DoS vulnerability may allow an attacker to make the remote server consume excessive CPU cycles. The QFILEPATHINFO remote buffer overflow vulnerability may allow an attacker to execute code on the server. An attacker needs credentials to exploit those flaws.


Upgrade to Samba 3.0.8 or higher.
