Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2009-98  

      Date: 2009-06-30
  Severity: 2
      Type: Local

Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Samba, which can be exploited

by malicious users to  bypass  certain  security  restrictions  and  by
malicious people to potentially compromise a user's system.

1) An uninitialised memory access error exists  in  smbd  when  denying

attempts to modify a restricted access control list (ACL). This can  be
exploited to potentially modify the ACL of  an  already  writable  file
without required permissions.

2) A format  string  error  exists  in  the  "smbclient"  utility  when

processing file names  received  as  command  arguments.  This  can  be
exploited to potentially execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into
e.g. issuing a "put" command having a malicious file name  argument  in


Affected packages:

  Pardus 2008:
    samba, all before 3.2.13-42-11

There are update(s) for samba. You can update them via Package  Manager

or with a single command from console:

    pisi up samba
