[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2007-038-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and 11.0 to fix a denial-of-service security issue.

More details about the issues fixed in Samba 3.0.24 may be found in the
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0452
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0453
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0454


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-3.0.24-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to samba-3.0.24.  From the WHATSNEW.txt file:
    "Important issues addressed in 3.0.24 include:
     o Fixes for the following security advisories:
       - CVE-2007-0452 (Potential Denial of Service bug in smbd)
       - CVE-2007-0453 (Buffer overrun in NSS host lookup Winbind
         NSS library on Solaris)
       - CVE-2007-0454 (Format string bug in afsacl.so VFS plugin)"
  Samba is Slackware is vulnerable to the first issue, which can cause smbd
  to enter into an infinite loop, disrupting Samba services.  Linux is not
  vulnerable to the second issue, and Slackware does not ship the afsacl.so
  VFS plugin (but it's something to be aware of if you build Samba with
  custom options).
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0452
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0453
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-0454
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
