Debian Security Advisory DSA 701-2                                        Martin Schulze
April 21st, 2005

Package        : samba
Vulnerability  : integer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1154
CERT advisory  : VU#226184
Debian Bug     : 302378

It has been discovered that the last security update for Samba, a
LanManager like file and printer server for GNU/Linux and Unix-like
systems caused the daemon to crash upon reload.  This has been fixed.
For reference below is the original advisory text:

   Greg MacManus discovered an integer overflow in the smb daemon from
   Samba, a LanManager like file and printer server for GNU/Linux and
   Unix-like systems.  Requesting a very large number of access control
   descriptors from the server could exploit the integer overflow, which
   may result in a buffer overflow which could lead to the execution of
   arbitrary code with root privileges.  Upstream developers have
   discovered more possible integer overflows that are fixed with this
   update as well.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.2.3a-15.

The version in the unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by this
new problem.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

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.
