Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:035: 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-2004:035 (samba).


A vulnerability was discovered in samba where a local user could use the smbmnt
utility, which is shipped suid root, to mount a file share from a remote server
which would contain a setuid program under the control of the user. By executing
this setuid program, the local user could elevate their rights on the local
system.
The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem. The version of samba
shipped with Mandrakelinux 10.0 does not have this problem.
