samba -- integer overflow vulnerability
Greg MacManus, iDEFENSE Labs reports:
Remote exploitation of an integer overflow vulnerability
in the smbd daemon included in Samba 2.0.x, Samba 2.2.x,
and Samba 3.0.x prior to and including 3.0.9 could allow
an attacker to cause controllable heap corruption, leading
to execution of arbitrary commands with root
Successful remote exploitation allows an attacker to gain
root privileges on a vulnerable system. In order to
exploit this vulnerability an attacker must possess
credentials that allow access to a share on the Samba
server. Unsuccessful exploitation attempts will cause the
process serving the request to crash with signal 11, and
may leave evidence of an attack in logs.
