Summary

Potential Buffer Overrun in Samba 3.0.x <= 3.0.4.

Insight

Insight

A buffer overrun has been located in the code used to support the 'mangling method = hash' smb.conf option. Please be aware that the default setting for this parameter is 'mangling method = hash2' and therefore not vulnerable. Affected Samba 3 installations can avoid this possible security bug by using the default hash2 mangling method. Server installations requiring the hash mangling method are encouraged to upgrade to Samba 3.0.5.

Affected Software

Affected Software

Samba versions 3.0.0 through 3.0.4.
