Fedora Core 2 2004-561: samba Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the samba package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-561 (samba).
Samba is the suite of programs by which a lot of PC-related machines
share files, printers, and other information (such as lists of
files and printers). The Windows NT, OS/2, and Linux operating systems
support this natively, and add-on packages can enable the same thing
for DOS, Windows, VMS, UNIX of all kinds, MVS, and more. This package
provides an SMB server that can be used to provide network services to
SMB (sometimes called 'Lan Manager') clients. Samba uses NetBIOS over
TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT need the NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw
NetBIOS frame) protocol.
