Vulnerability Assessment Details
Samba: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200411-21
(Samba: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Samba fails to do proper bounds checking when handling
TRANSACT2_QFILEPATHINFO replies. Additionally an input validation flaw
exists in ms_fnmatch.c when matching filenames that contain wildcards.
A possible hacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the permissions
of the user running Samba. A remote attacker may also be able to cause
an abnormal consumption of CPU resources, resulting in slower
performance of the server or even a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/samba-3.0.8"
Network Security Threat Level: Medium
