Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:062: 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 MDKSA-2001:062 (samba).


Michal Zalewski has found a vulnerability in all versions of Samba prior to
2.0.10 where if a client sends an invalid netbios name Samba could be tricked
into appending it's log to files writable by root. This can be very dangerous if
combined with a symlink created by a local user. Note that the log files must be
specified as %m.log in order for this to work, and Mandrake Linux ships Samba by
default using log.%m, thus it is not vulnerable 'out of the box'.
