Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with root privileges, cause a Denial of Service condition, take ownership of shared files, or bypass file permissions. Furthermore, a local attacker may be able to cause a Denial of Service condition or obtain sensitive information in a Samba credentials file.
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-3.5.15"
