Description

Certain versions of Samba's SWAT administration server are vulnerable to a buffer overflow when parsing invalid authentication data. This allows any unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code under the privileges or the SWAT process (which is possibly root).

Solution(s)

  • samba-upgrade-3_0_5

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.
