Description

This update fixes all currently known regressions introduced with the previous two revisions of DSA-1409. The original text is reproduced below :

Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in samba, a LanManager-like file and printer server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2007-5398       Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research discovered that nmbd       did not properly check the length of netbios packets.
  When samba is configured as a WINS server, a remote       attacker could send multiple crafted requests       resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with root       privileges.

- CVE-2007-4572       Samba developers discovered that nmbd could be made to       overrun a buffer during the processing of GETDC logon       server requests. When samba is configured as a Primary       or Backup Domain Controller, a remote attacker could       send malicious logon requests and possibly cause a       denial of service.
