Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA701] DSA-701-2 samba

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-701-2 samba

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

It has been discovered that the last security update for Samba, a
LanManager like file and printer server for GNU/Linux and Unix-like
systems caused the daemon to crash upon reload. This has been fixed.
For reference below is the original advisory text:
Greg MacManus discovered an integer overflow in the smb daemon from
Samba, a LanManager like file and printer server for GNU/Linux and
Unix-like systems. Requesting a very large number of access control
descriptors from the server could exploit the integer overflow, which
may result in a buffer overflow which could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code with root rights. Upstream developers have
discovered more possible integer overflows that are fixed with this
update as well.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.2.3a-15.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.0.10-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
