Samba is freely available under the GNU General Public License." Product Link: http://www.samba.org/ ====================================================================== 4) Description of Vulnerability Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Samba, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system. The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "send_mailslot()" function. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow with zero bytes via a specially crafted "SAMLOGON" domain logon packet containing a username string placed at an odd offset followed by an overly long GETDC string. Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but requires that the "domain logons" option is enabled. ====================================================================== 5) Solution A fix should be released later today. ====================================================================== 6) Time Table 22/11/2007 - Vendor notified. 22/11/2007 - vendor-sec notified. 23/11/2007 - Vendor response. 10/12/2007 - Public disclosure. ====================================================================== 7) Credits Discovered by Alin Rad Pop, Secunia Research. ====================================================================== 8) References The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned CVE-2007-6015 for the vulnerability. ====================================================================== 9) About Secunia Secunia offers vulnerability management solutions to corporate customers with verified and reliable vulnerability intelligence relevant to their specific system configuration: http://corporate.secunia.com/ Secunia also provides a publicly accessible and comprehensive advisory database as a service to the security community and private individuals, who are interested in or concerned about IT-security. http://secunia.com/ Secunia believes that it is important to support the community and to do active vulnerability research in order to aid improving the security and reliability of software in general: http://corporate.secunia.com/secunia_research/33/ Secunia regularly hires new skilled team members.
