Fedora Legacy Update Advisory - FLSA:2102 - Updated samba resolves security 


Karol Wiesek discovered an input validation issue in Samba prior to 3.0.6. An 
authenticated user could send a carefully crafted request to the Samba server, 
which would allow access to files outside of the configured file share.

               Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis:          Updated samba resolves security vulnerabilities
Advisory ID:       FLSA:2102
Issue date:        2004-10-13
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          Security
Cross references:  https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=2102
CVE Names:         CAN-2004-0815
- -----------------------------------------------------------------------

- -----------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated samba packages that fix an input validation vulnerability are now available.

Samba provides file and printer sharing services to SMB/CIFS clients.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386

3. Problem description:

Karol Wiesek discovered an input validation issue in Samba prior to 3.0.6. An 
authenticated user could send a carefully crafted request to the Samba server, 
which would allow access to files outside of the configured file share. Note: 
Such files would have to be readable by the account used for the connection. 
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0815 to this issue.

Users of Samba should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain an upgrade 
to Samba-2.2.12, which is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant 
to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those RPMs which 
are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are not installed but 
included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) 
if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt.  Many people find 
this an easier way to apply updates.  To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs 
being upgraded on your system.  This assumes that you have yum or apt-get 
configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit 
http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs/ for directions on how to configure yum and apt-get.

You can verify each package with the following command:

    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or tampered with, 
examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

    sha1sum <filename>
