Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:064
Summary:Redhat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:064
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:064.

Samba provides file and printer sharing services to SMB/CIFS clients.

The Samba team discovered an issue that affects version 3.0.0 and 3.0.1 of
Samba. If an account for a user is created, but marked as disabled using
the mksmbpasswd script, it is possible for Samba to overwrite the user's
password with the contents of an uninitialized buffer. This might lead to
a disabled account becoming enabled with a password that could be guessed
by an attacker.

Although this is likely to be a low risk issue for most Samba users, we
have provided updated packages, which contain a backported patch correcting
this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank the Samba team for reporting this issue and
providing us with a patch.

Note: Due to a packaging error in samba-3.0.0-14.3E, the winbind daemon is
not automatically restarted when the Samba package is upgraded. After
up2date has installed the samba-3.0.2-4.3E packages, you must run
/sbin/service winbind condrestart as root to restart the winbind daemon.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
