Description

Ivano Cristofolini discovered that insufficient security checks in Samba's handling of LSA RPC calls could lead to privilege escalation by gaining the take ownership privilege.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze8.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.6.5-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
