Fedora Core 1 2004-284: samba

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the samba package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-284 (samba).

Samba is the protocol by which a lot of PC-related machines share
files, printers, and other information (such as lists of available
files and printers). The Windows NT, OS/2, and Linux operating systems
support this natively, and add-on packages can enable the same thing
for DOS, Windows, VMS, UNIX of all kinds, MVS, and more. This package
provides an SMB server that can be used to provide network services to
SMB (sometimes called 'Lan Manager') clients. Samba uses NetBIOS over
TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT need the NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw
NetBIOS frame) protocol.
