Samba contains multiple vulnerabilities potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with root privileges.
|Package||net-fs/samba on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 3.0.24-r2|
|Unaffected versions||>= 3.0.24-r2|
Samba is a suite of SMB and CIFS client/server programs for UNIX.
Samba contains a logical error in the smbd daemon when translating local SID to user names (CVE-2007-2444). Furthermore, Samba contains several bugs when parsing NDR encoded RPC parameters (CVE-2007-2446). Lastly, Samba fails to properly sanitize remote procedure input provided via Microsoft Remote Procedure Calls (CVE-2007-2447).
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to gain root privileges via various vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/samba-3.0.24-r2"
