Debian GNU/Linux Advisory: samba

Nov 24, 2002, 01:58 (0 Talkback[s])

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-200-1                   security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                         Wichert Akkerman

Package        : samba
Problem type   : remote exploit
Debian-specific: no

Steve Langasek found an exploitable bug in the password handling
code in samba: when converting from DOS code-page to little endian
UCS2 unicode a buffer length was not checked and a buffer could
be overflowed. There is no known exploit for this, but an upgrade
is strongly recommended.

This problem has been fixed in version 2.2.3a-12 of the Debian
samba packages and upstream version 2.2.7.
