Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA280] DSA-280-1 samba

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-280-1 samba

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Digital Defense, Inc. has alerted the Samba Team to a serious
vulnerability in Samba, a LanManager-like file and printer server for Unix.
This vulnerability can lead to an anonymous user gaining root access
on a Samba serving system. An exploit for this problem is already
circulating and in use.
Since the packages for potato are quite old it is likely that they
contain more security-relevant bugs that we don't know of. You are
therefore advised to upgrade your systems running Samba to woody
soon.
Unofficial backported packages from the Samba maintainers for version
2.2.8 of Samba for woody are available at
~peloy and
~vorlon.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.3a-12.3.
For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0.7-5.1.
The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected since it contains
version 3.0 packages already.
We recommend that you upgrade your Samba packages immediately.
