MDKSA-2004:136: 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 MDKSA-2004:136 (samba).
Steffan Esser discovered that invalid bounds checking in reply to certain
trans2 requests could result in a buffer overrun in smbd. This can only be
exploited by a malicious user able to create files with very specific Unicode
filenames on a samba share.
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.
