Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0060

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0060.

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

A denial of service flaw was found in Samba's smbd daemon process. An
authenticated user could send a specially crafted request which would cause
a smbd child process to enter an infinite loop condition. By opening
multiple CIFS sessions, an attacker could exhaust system resources.

Users of Samba should update to these packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.

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
