Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2010-91  
      Date: 2010-06-30
  Severity: 3
      Type: Remote

A vulnerability has been fixed in Samba,  which  can  be  exploited  by
malicious people to potentially compromise a vulnerable system.


Buffer overflow in the  SMB1  packet  chaining  implementation  in  the
chain_reply function in process.c in smbd in Samba 3.0.x before  3.3.13
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption
and daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted field
in a packet.

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2009:
    samba, all before 3.3.10-53-14

There are update(s) for samba. You can update them via Package  Manager
or with a single command from console:

    pisi up samba
