Details

Updated samba packages that fix several bugs are now available.

Samba is a suite of programs used by machines to share files, printers, and
other information.

These updated samba packages provide fixes for the following bugs:

* due to the method in which the Microsoft® Excel program saves files, in
certain corner cases the access control list (ACL) inheritance rules could
have been interpreted in the wrong order, and the owner of a file saved by
Excel could have ended up losing access to that file. These updated
packages include an adjusted fix for this problem which fixes the ACL
inheritance so that saving an Excel file does not cause the owner to
change. (BZ#501513)

* a user who did not own a directory on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
machine accessed via Samba was also unable to write to that directory when
its permissions were set to 733. The user should have been able to both
write to and enter (but not list the contents of) a directory with such a
permission mode. With this update, users are once again able to write to
directories over Samba when they possess the appropriate permissions, thus
resolving this issue. (BZ#501514)

All users of samba are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues.


Solution

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
