Description

Integer overflow in the Samba daemon (smbd) in Samba 2.x and 3.0.x through 3.0.9 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a Samba request with a large number of security descriptors that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • samba-upgrade-3_0_10

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
