Ubuntu: Samba vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu Gunter Höckel discovered that Samba with registry shares enabled did not properly validate share names. An authenticated user could gain access to the root filesystem by using an older version of smbclient and specifying an empty string as a share name. This is only an issue if registry shares are enabled on the server by setting "registry shares = yes", "include = registry", or "config backend = registry", which is not the default.
===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-702-1           January 05, 2009
samba vulnerability
CVE-2009-0022
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
  samba                           2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.4

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Gunter Höckel discovered that Samba with registry shares enabled did not
properly validate share names. An authenticated user could gain access to the
root filesystem by using an older version of smbclient and specifying an
empty string as a share name. This is only an issue if registry shares are
enabled on the server by setting "registry shares = yes", "include = registry",
or "config backend = registry", which is not the default.
