Description

Updated samba packages that fix a buffer overflow issue are now available.

Samba provides file and printer sharing services to SMB/CIFS clients. The Samba team discovered a buffer overflow in the code used to support the 'mangling method = hash' smb.conf option. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0686 to this issue. All users of Samba should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain an upgrade to Samba-2.2.10, which is not vulnerable to this issue.
