Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51147
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:498
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:498.

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

Karol Wiesek discovered an input validation issue in Samba prior to 3.0.6.
An authenticated user could send a carefully crafted request to the Samba
server, which would allow access to files outside of the configured file
share. Note: Such files would have to be readable by the account used
for the connection. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0815 to this issue.

This issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 as a previous erratum
updated to Samba 3.0.6 which is not vulnerable to this issue.

Users of Samba should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain an
upgrade to Samba-2.2.12, which is not vulnerable to this issue.

Solution:
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
