RHSA-2004-498: samba

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the samba packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated samba packages that fix an input validation vulnerability are now
available.

Samba provides file and printer sharing services to SMB/CIFS clients.

Karol Wiesek discovered an input validation issue in Samba prior to 3.0.6.
An authenticated user could send a carefully crafted request to the Samba
server, which would permit access to files outside of the configured file
share. Note: Such files would have to be readable by the account used
for the connection. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0815 to this issue.

This issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 as a previous erratum
updated to Samba 3.0.6 which is not vulnerable to this issue.

Users of Samba should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain an
upgrade to Samba-2.2.12, which is not vulnerable to this issue.
