Debian Security Advisory DSA 203-1                     security@debian.org

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : smb2www
Vulnerability  : arbitrary command execution
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Robert Luberda found a security problem in smb2www, a Windows Network
client that is accessible through a web browser.  This could lead a
remote attacker to execute arbitrary programs under the user id
www-data on the host where smb2www is running.

This problem has been fixed in version 980804-16.1 for the current
stable distribution (woody), in version 980804-8.1 of the old stable
distribution (potato) and in version 980804-17 for the unstable
distribution (sid).

We recommend that you upgrade your smb2www package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
