Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA463] DSA-463-1 samba

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-463-1 samba

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Samba, a LanManager-like file and printer server for Unix, was found
to contain a vulnerability whereby a local user could use the "smbmnt"
utility, which is setuid root, to mount a file share from a remote
server which contained setuid programs under the control of the user.
These programs could then be executed to gain rights on the local
system.
For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
fixed in version 2.2.3a-13.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.2-2.
We recommend that you update your samba package.
