for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System
(CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is
available from the CVE link in the References section.

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

A flaw was found in the way Samba handled file descriptors. If an
attacker were able to open a large number of file descriptors on the
Samba server, they could flip certain stack bits to '1' values,
resulting in the Samba server (smbd) crashing. (CVE-2011-0719)

Red Hat would like to thank the Samba team for reporting this issue.

Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing
this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically."
