Description Mark J. Cox 2003-03-17 09:57:01 UTC
Sebastian Krahmer discovered a security vulnerability present
in unpatched versions of Samba prior to 2.2.8. An anonymous user could use
the vulnerability to gain root access on the target machine.
This is CAN-2003-0085

Additionally, a race condition could allow an attacker to overwrite
critical system files.
This is CAN-2003-0086

Updated packages based on samba 2.2.7 will be available shortly

Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2003-04-08 15:49:10 UTC
This was fixed in samba-2.2.7-2.21as and samba-2.2.7-3.21as
