Insight

Insight

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 denial of service flaw was found in the way the sys_recvfile() function of nmbd, the NetBIOS message block daemon, processed non-blocking sockets. An attacker could send a specially crafted packet that, when processed, would cause nmbd to enter an infinite loop and consume an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2014-0244) It was discovered that smbd, the Samba file server daemon, did not properly handle certain files that were stored on the disk and used a valid Unicode character in the file name. An attacker able to send an authenticated non-Unicode request that attempted to read such a file could cause smbd to crash. (CVE-2014-3493) Red Hat would like to thank Daniel Berteaud of FIREWALL-SERVICES SARL for reporting CVE-2014-0244, and the Samba project for reporting CVE-2014-3493. The Samba project acknowledges Simon Arlott as the original reporter of CVE-2014-3493. All Samba users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
