Description

Updated samba packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.5 Extended Update Support.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

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

A stack buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Samba authenticates remote users. A remote unauthenticated user could trigger this flaw to cause the Samba server to crash, or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the Samba server. (CVE-2007-6015)

Red Hat would like to thank Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research for responsibly disclosing this issue.

Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
