Details

Updated Samba packages that fix a security vulnerability are now available.

[Updated 9 April 2003]
Fixed Samba packages for Red Hat Linux 7.1 have been added to this erratum.

Samba is a suite of utilities which provide file and printer sharing
services to SMB/CIFS clients.

A security vulnerability has been found in versions of Samba up to and
including 2.2.8. An anonymous user could exploit the vulnerability to
gain root access on the target machine. Note that this is a different
vulnerability than the one fixed by RHSA-2003:095.

An exploit for this vulnerability is publicly available.

All users of Samba are advised to update to the packages listed in this
erratum, which contain a backported patch correcting this vulnerability.


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 Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
