Fedora Core Advisory: samba

Sep 14, 2004, 20:28 (0 Talkback[s])
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-304
2004-09-13

Product : Fedora Core 1
Name : samba
Version : 3.0.7
Release : 2.FC1
Summary : The Samba SMB server.

Description :
Samba is the protocol by which a lot of PC-related machines share files, printers, and other information (such as lists of available files and printers). The Windows NT, OS/2, and Linux operating systems support this natively, and add-on packages can enable the same thing for DOS, Windows, VMS, UNIX of all kinds, MVS, and more. This package provides an SMB server that can be used to provide network services to SMB (sometimes called "Lan Manager") clients. Samba uses NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT need the NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw NetBIOS frame) protocol.


Update Information:

This update addcesses two DoS errors in Samba-3.0.6

This update may also fix other problems some people experienced with Samba-3.0.6.
