Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Samba: Denial of Service vulnerability (GLSA 200607-10)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 25, 2006
Bug(s): #139369
ID: 200607-10

Synopsis

A large number of share connection requests could cause a Denial of Service within Samba.

Background

Samba is a freely available SMB/CIFS implementation which allows seamless interoperability of file and print services to other SMB/CIFS clients.

Affected Packages

Package: net-fs/samba
Vulnerable: < 3.0.22-r3
Unaffected: >= 3.0.22-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

During an internal audit the Samba team discovered that a flaw in the way Samba stores share connection requests could lead to a Denial of Service.

Impact

By sending a large amount of share connection requests to a vulnerable Samba server, an attacker could cause a Denial of Service due to memory consumption.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/samba-3.0.22-r3"
