Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0305
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0305.

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.

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
