[security-alerts] FW: [SA27450] Samba Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities



> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
>
> TITLE:
> Samba Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities
>
> SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
> SA27450
>
> VERIFY ADVISORY:
> http://secunia.com/advisories/27450/
>
> CRITICAL:
> Moderately critical
>
> IMPACT:
> System access
>
> WHERE:
> From local network
>
> SOFTWARE:
> Samba 3.x
> http://secunia.com/product/2999/
> Samba 2.x
> http://secunia.com/product/1271/
>
> DESCRIPTION:
> Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Samba, which can be
> exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
>
> 1) A boundary error exists within the "reply_netbios_packet()"
> function in nmbd/nmbd_packets.c when sending NetBIOS replies. This
> can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by sending
> multiple specially crafted WINS "Name Registration" requests followed
> by a WINS "Name Query" request.
>
> Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but
> requires that Samba is configured to run as a WINS server (the "wins
> support" option is enabled).
>
> 2) A boundary error exists within the processing of GETDC logon
> requests. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow by sending
> specially crafted GETDC mailslot requests.
>
> Successful exploitation of the vulnerability requires that Samba is
> configured as a Primary or Backup Domain Controller.
>
> The vulnerabilities are reported in version 3.0.26a. Other versions
> may also be affected.
>
> SOLUTION:
> Apply patches or update to version 3.0.27.
>
> Patches for version 3.0.26a:
> http://us1.samba.org/samba/ftp/patches/security/samba-3.0.26a-
> CVE-2007-5398.patch
> http://us1.samba.org/samba/ftp/patches/security/samba-3.0.26a-
> CVE-2007-4572.patch
>
> PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
