If an attackerwere able to open a large number of file descriptors on the Samba server,they could flip certain stack bits to "1" values, resulting in the Sambaserver (smbd) crashing. (CVE-2011-0719)Red Hat would like to thank the Samba team for reporting this issue.Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, whichcontain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing thisupdate, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
