Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.71210
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:0465
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:0465.

Samba is an open-source implementation of the Server Message Block (SMB) or
Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol, which allows PC-compatible
machines to share files, printers, and other information.

A flaw in the Samba suite's Perl-based DCE/RPC IDL (PIDL) compiler, used
to generate code to handle RPC calls, resulted in multiple buffer overflows
in Samba. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could send a specially-crafted
RPC request that would cause the Samba daemon (smbd) to crash or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user.
(CVE-2012-1182)

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:
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
