Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0306
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0306.

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

A flaw was found in the way Samba handled file descriptors. If an attacker
were able to open a large number of file descriptors on the Samba server,
they could flip certain stack bits to 1 values, resulting in the Samba
server (smbd) crashing. (CVE-2011-0719)

Red Hat would like to thank the Samba team for reporting this issue.

Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing this
update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.

Solution:

Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
