Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Samba: Integer overflow (GLSA 200412-13)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 17, 2004
Bug(s): #73943
ID: 200412-13

Synopsis

Samba contains a bug that could lead to remote execution of arbitrary code.

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: <= 3.0.9
Unaffected: >= 3.0.9-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Samba contains a bug when unmarshalling specific MS-RPC requests from clients.

Impact

A remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Samba, which could be the root user.

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-3.0.9-r1"
