Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0591: samba

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the samba packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated samba packages that fix a denial of service vulnerability are now
available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

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

A denial of service bug was found in the way the smbd daemon tracks active
connections to shares. It was possible for a remote attacker to cause the
smbd daemon to consume a large amount of system memory by sending carefully
crafted smb requests. (CVE-2006-3403)

Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
