CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Affected Versions:
libsmbclient on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
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. It was discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) did not protect against being opened in a web page frame. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to conduct a clickjacking attack against SWAT users or users with an active SWAT session. (CVE-2013-0213) A flaw was found in the Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) protection mechanism implemented in SWAT. An attacker with the knowledge of a victim's password could use this flaw to bypass CSRF protections and conduct a CSRF attack against the victim SWAT user. (CVE-2013-0214) An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Samba handled an Extended Attribute (EA) list provided by a client. A malicious client could send a specially crafted EA list that triggered an overflow, causing the server to loop and reprocess the list using an excessive amount of memory. (CVE-2013-4124) Note: This issue did not affect the default configuration of the Samba server. Red Hat would like to thank the Samba project for reporting CVE-2013-0213 and CVE-2013-0214. Upstream acknowledges Jann Horn as the original reporter of CVE-2013-0213 and CVE-2013-0214. All users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'libsmbclient' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
