Subject: Security ERRATA Critical: samba on SL4.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Friday 24th February 2012 14:38:47 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Synopsis:    Critical: samba security update
Issue Date:  2012-02-23
CVE Numbers: CVE-2012-0870


Samba is a suite of programs used by machines to share files, printers, and
other information.

An input validation flaw was found in the way Samba handled Any Batched
(AndX) requests. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could send a
specially-crafted SMB packet to the Samba server, possibly resulting in
arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the Samba server (root).
(CVE-2012-0870)

Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing this
update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
