Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1110] DSA-1110-1 samba

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1110-1 samba

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Gerald Carter discovered that the smbd daemon from Samba, a free
implementation of the SMB/CIFS protocol, imposes insufficient limits
in the code to handle shared connections, which can be exploited to
exhaust system memory by sending maliciously crafted requests, leading
to denial of service.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.14a-3sarge2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your samba package.
