    description Updated samba packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Samba is a suite of programs used by machines to share files, printers, and other information. A denial of service flaw was found in the Samba smbd daemon. An authenticated, remote user could send a specially crafted response that would cause an smbd child process to enter an infinite loop. An authenticated, remote user could use this flaw to exhaust system resources by opening multiple CIFS sessions. (CVE-2009-2906) An uninitialized data access flaw was discovered in the smbd daemon when using the non-default 'dos filemode' configuration option in 'smb.conf'. An authenticated, remote user with write access to a file could possibly use this flaw to change an access control list for that file, even when such access should have been denied. (CVE-2009-1888) A flaw was discovered in the way Samba handled users without a home directory set in the back-end password database (e.g. '/etc/passwd'). If a share for the home directory of such a user was created (e.g. using the automated '[homes]' share), any user able to access that share could see the whole file system, possibly bypassing intended access restrictions. (CVE-2009-2813) The mount.cifs program printed CIFS passwords as part of its debug output when running in verbose mode. When mount.cifs had the setuid bit set, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to disclose passwords from a file that would otherwise be inaccessible to that user. Note: mount.cifs from the samba packages distributed by Red Hat does not have the setuid bit set. This flaw only affected systems where the setuid bit was manually set by an administrator. (CVE-2009-2948) Users of Samba should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in samba : The acl_group_override function in smbd/posix_acls.c in smbd in Samba 3.0.x before 3.0.35, 3.1.x and 3.2.x before 3.2.13, and 3.3.x before 3.3.6, when dos filemode is enabled, allows remote attackers to modify access control lists for files via vectors related to read access to uninitialized memory (CVE-2009-1888). The SMB (aka Samba) subsystem in Apple Mac OS X 10.5.8, when Windows File Sharing is enabled, does not properly handle errors in resolving pathnames, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended sharing restrictions, and read, create, or modify files, in certain circumstances involving user accounts that lack home directories (CVE-2009-2813). smbd in Samba 3.0 before 3.0.37, 3.2 before 3.2.15, 3.3 before 3.3.8, and 3.4 before 3.4.2 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via an unanticipated oplock break notification reply packet (CVE-2009-2906). mount.cifs in Samba 3.0 before 3.0.37, 3.2 before 3.2.15, 3.3 before 3.3.8 and 3.4 before 3.4.2, when mount.cifs is installed suid root, does not properly enforce permissions, which allows local users to read part of the credentials file and obtain the password by specifying the path to the credentials file and using the --verbose or -v option (CVE-2009-2948). The version of samba shipping with Mandriva Linux 2008.0 has been updated to the latest version (3.0.37) that includes the fixes for these issues.

    description Updated samba3x packages that fix multiple security issues and various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Samba is a suite of programs used by machines to share files, printers, and other information. These samba3x packages provide Samba 3.3, which is a Technology Preview for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. These packages cannot be installed in parallel with the samba packages. Note: Technology Previews are not intended for production use. A denial of service flaw was found in the Samba smbd daemon. An authenticated, remote user could send a specially crafted response that would cause an smbd child process to enter an infinite loop. An authenticated, remote user could use this flaw to exhaust system resources by opening multiple CIFS sessions.

Note: mount.cifs from the samba3x packages distributed by Red Hat does not have the setuid bit set. This flaw only affected systems where the setuid bit was manually set by an administrator. (CVE-2009-2948) This update also fixes the following bugs : * the samba3x packages contained missing and conflicting license information. License information was missing for the libtalloc, libtdb, and tdb-tools packages. The samba3x-common package provided a COPYING file; however, it stated the license was GPLv2, while RPM metadata stated the licenses were either GPLv3 or LGPLv3. This update adds the correct licensing information to the samba3x-common, libsmbclient, libtalloc, libtdb, and tdb-tools packages. (BZ#528633) * the upstream Samba version in the samba3x packages distributed with the RHEA-2009:1399 update contained broken implementations of the Netlogon credential chain and SAMR access checks security subsystems. This prevented Samba from acting as a domain controller: Client systems could not join the domain; users could not authenticate; and systems could not access the user and group list. (BZ#524551) * this update resolves interoperability issues with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. (BZ#529022) These packages upgrade Samba from version 3.3.5 to version 3.3.8. Refer to the Samba Release Notes for a list of changes between versions: http://samba.org/samba/history/ Users of samba3x should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.

    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1528.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1528 : Updated samba packages that fix a security issue and a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Samba is a suite of programs used by machines to share files, printers, and other information. A denial of service flaw was found in the Samba smbd daemon. An authenticated, remote user could send a specially crafted response that would cause an smbd child process to enter an infinite loop. An authenticated, remote user could use this flaw to exhaust system resources by opening multiple CIFS sessions. (CVE-2009-2906) This update also fixes the following bug : * the RHSA-2007:0354 update added code to escape input passed to scripts that are run by Samba. This code was missing 'c' from the list of valid characters, causing it to be escaped. With this update, the previous patch has been updated to include 'c' in the list of valid characters. (BZ#242754) Users of Samba should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.

    description A denial of service flaw was found in the Samba smbd daemon. An authenticated, remote user could send a specially crafted response that would cause an smbd child process to enter an infinite loop. An authenticated, remote user could use this flaw to exhaust system resources by opening multiple CIFS sessions. (CVE-2009-2906) An uninitialized data access flaw was discovered in the smbd daemon when using the non-default 'dos filemode' configuration option in 'smb.conf'. An authenticated, remote user with write access to a file could possibly use this flaw to change an access control list for that file, even when such access should have been denied. (CVE-2009-1888) A flaw was discovered in the way Samba handled users without a home directory set in the back-end password database (e.g. '/etc/passwd'). If a share for the home directory of such a user was created (e.g. using the automated '[homes]' share), any user able to access that share could see the whole file system, possibly bypassing intended access restrictions.(CVE-2009-2813) The mount.cifs program printed CIFS passwords as part of its debug output when running in verbose mode. When mount.cifs had the setuid bit set, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to disclose passwords from a file that would otherwise be inaccessible to that user. Note: mount.cifs from the samba packages distributed by Red Hat does not have the setuid bit set. This flaw only affected systems where the setuid bit was manually set by an administrator. (CVE-2009-2948) This update also fixes the following bug for SL3 : - an earlier update added code to escape input passed to scripts that are run by Samba. This code was missing 'c' from the list of valid characters, causing it to be escaped. With this update, the previous patch has been updated to include 'c' in the list of valid characters. (BZ#242754) After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.

    description The remote VMware ESX host is missing a security-related patch. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in several third-party components and libraries : - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the ACPI Event Daemon (acpid) that allows a remote attacker to cause a consumption of CPU resources by opening a large number of UNIX sockets without closing them. (CVE-2009-0798) - A security bypass vulnerability exists in Samba in the acl_group_override() function when dos filemode is enabled. A remote attacker can exploit this to modify access control lists for files via vectors related to read access to uninitialized memory. (CVE-2009-1888) - A security bypass vulnerability exists in Samba in the SMB subsystem due to improper handling of errors when resolving pathnames. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass intended sharing restrictions, and read, create, or modify files, in certain circumstances involving user accounts that lack home directories. (CVE-2009-2813) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in Samba that allows authenticated, remote attackers to cause an infinite loop via an unanticipated oplock break notification reply packet. (CVE-2009-2906) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Samba in mount.cifs due to improper enforcement of permissions. A local attacker can exploit this to read part of the credentials file and obtain the password by specifying the path to the credentials file and using the --verbose or -v option. (CVE-2009-2948)

    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-1908.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in samba, an implementation of the SMB/CIFS protocol for Unix systems, providing support for cross-platform file and printer sharing with other operating systems and more. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-2948 The mount.cifs utility is missing proper checks for file permissions when used in verbose mode. This allows local users to partly disclose the content of arbitrary files by specifying the file as credentials file and attempting to mount a samba share. - CVE-2009-2906 A reply to an oplock break notification which samba doesn't expect could lead to the service getting stuck in an infinite loop. An attacker can use this to perform denial of service attacks via a specially crafted SMB request. - CVE-2009-2813 A lack of error handling in case no home directory was configured/specified for the user could lead to file disclosure. In case the automated [homes] share is enabled or an explicit share is created with that username, samba fails to enforce sharing restrictions which results in an attacker being able to access the file system from the root directory.

    description J. David Hester discovered that Samba incorrectly handled users that lack home directories when the automated [homes] share is enabled. An authenticated user could connect to that share name and gain access to the whole filesystem. (CVE-2009-2813) Tim Prouty discovered that the smbd daemon in Samba incorrectly handled certain unexpected network replies. A remote attacker could send malicious replies to the server and cause smbd to use all available CPU, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-2906) Ronald Volgers discovered that the mount.cifs utility, when installed as a setuid program, would not verify user permissions before opening a credentials file. A local user could exploit this to use or read the contents of unauthorized credential files. (CVE-2009-2948) Reinhard Nissl discovered that the smbclient utility contained format string vulnerabilities in its file name handling. Because of security features in Ubuntu, exploitation of this vulnerability is limited. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted file name, smbclient could be made to crash, possibly leading to a denial of service. This only affected Ubuntu 8.10. (CVE-2009-1886) Jeremy Allison discovered that the smbd daemon in Samba incorrectly handled permissions to modify access control lists when dos filemode is enabled. A remote attacker could exploit this to modify access control lists. This only affected Ubuntu 8.10 and Ubuntu 9.04. (CVE-2009-1886).
