Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:092: 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-2004:092 (samba).


Two vulnerabilities were discovered in samba 3.0.x
the first is a defect in
smbd's ASN.1 parsing that permits a possible hacker to send a specially crafted packet
during the authentication request which will send the newly spawned smbd process
into an infinite loop. As a result, it is possible to use up all available
memory on the server.
The second vulnerability is in nmbd's processing of mailslot packets which could
permit a possible hacker to anonymously crash nmbd.
The provided packages are patched to protect against these two vulnerabilities.
