Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:136: 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-2004:136 (samba).



Steffan Esser discovered that invalid bounds checking in reply to certain
trans2 requests could result in a buffer overrun in smbd. This can only be
exploited by a malicious user able to create files with very specific Unicode
filenames on a samba share.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
