Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:131: 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-2004:131 (samba).



Karol Wiesek discovered a bug in the input validation routines in Samba 3.x
used to match filename strings containing wildcard characters. This bug may
permit a user to consume more than normal amounts of CPU cycles which would
impact the performance and response of the server. In some cases it could also
cause the server to become entirely unresponsive.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem with patches from the
Samba team. This vulnerability is fixed in samba 3.0.8.
