Insight

Insight

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) For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, this update also fixes the following bug: * Previously, the restorecon utility was required during the installation of the samba-common package. As a result, attempting to update samba without this utility installed may have failed with the following error: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.[xxxxx]: line 7: restorecon: command not found With this update, the utility is only used when it is already present on the system, and the package is now always updated as expected. (BZ#629602) Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
