CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE   : samba
SUMMARY   : Multiple potential buffer overruns
DATE      : 2004-07-30 11:35:00
ID        : CLA-2004:854

RELEASES  : 8, 9

DESCRIPTION
 Samba[1] provides SMB/CIFS services (such as file and printer
 sharing) used by clients compatible with Microsoft Windows(TM).
 
 Evgeny Demidov noticed that the internal routine used by the Samba
 Web Administration Tool (SWAT) to decode the base64 data during HTTP
 basic authentication is subject[2] to a buffer overrun caused by an
 invalid base64 character.  This same code is used internally to
 decode the sambaMungedDial attribute value when using the ldapsam
 passdb backend and to decode input given to the ntlm_auth tool.
 
 Another buffer overrun problem[3] has been located in the code used
 to support the 'mangling method = hash' smb.conf option. Please be
 aware that the default setting for this parameter is 'mangling method
 = hash2' and therefore not vulnerable.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all samba users upgrade their packages. This
 update will automatically restart the service if it is already
 running.
