Package        : samba
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0178 CVE-2014-0244 CVE-2014-3493
Debian Bug     : 

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and fixed in Samba, a SMB/CIFS
file, print, and login server:


    Information leak vulnerability in the VFS code, allowing an
    authenticated user to retrieve eight bytes of uninitialized memory
    when shadow copy is enabled.


    Denial of service (infinite CPU loop) in the nmbd Netbios name
    service daemon. A malformed packet can cause the nmbd server to
    enter an infinite loop, preventing it to process later requests to
    the Netbios name service.


    Denial of service (daemon crash) in the smbd file server daemon. An
    authenticated user attempting to read a Unicode path using a
    non-Unicode request can force the daemon to overwrite memory at an
    invalid address.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u4.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 2:4.1.9+dfsg-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2:4.1.9+dfsg-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
