Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0860
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0860.

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

A missing array boundary checking flaw was found in the way Samba parsed
the binary representation of Windows security identifiers (SIDs). A
malicious client could send a specially-crafted SMB request to the Samba
server, resulting in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the
Samba server (smbd). (CVE-2010-3069)

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

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

Risk factor : High
