Description

Logic error in the SID/Name translation functionality in smbd in Samba 3.0.23d through 3.0.25pre2 allows local users to gain temporary privileges and execute SMB/CIFS protocol operations via unspecified vectors that cause the daemon to transition to the root user.

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.
