Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200409-14] Samba: Remote printing vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Samba: Remote printing vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200409-14
(Samba: Remote printing vulnerability)


Due to a bug in the printer_notify_info() function, authorized users could
potentially crash the Samba server by sending improperly handled print
change notification requests in an invalid order. Windows XP SP2 clients
can trigger this behavior by sending a FindNextPrintChangeNotify() request
before previously sending a FindFirstPrintChangeNotify() request.

Impact

A remote authorized user could potentially crash a Samba server after
issuing these out of sequence requests.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
