============================================================ Subject:     Format string bug in afsacl.so VFS plugin.
== CVE ID#:     CVE-2007-0454
=== Versions:    The AFS ACL mapping VFS plugin distributed
==		in Samba 3.0.6 - 3.0.23d (inclusive)
=== Summary:     The name of a file on the server's share
==		is used as the format string when setting
==		an NT security descriptor through the
==		afsacl.so VFS plugin.
==========================================================
==========Description
==========
NOTE: This security advisory only impacts Samba servers
that share AFS file systems to CIFS clients and which have
been explicitly instructed in smb.conf to load the afsacl.so
VFS module.

The source defect results in the name of a file stored on
disk being used as the format string in a call to snprintf().
This bug becomes exploitable only when a user is able
to write to a share which utilizes Samba's afsacl.so library
for setting Windows NT access control lists on files residing
on an AFS file system.


=================Patch Availability
=================
A patch against Samba 3.0.23d has been attached to this
email.  This fix has be incorporated into the Samba 3.0.24
release.  Patches are also available from at the Samba Security
page (http://www.samba.org/samba/security). 


=========Workaround
=========
An unpatched server may be protected by removing all
references to the afsacl.so VFS module from shares in
smb.conf.
