-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Debian Security Advisory DSA-2450-1 Thijs Kinkhorst April 12, 2012 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package : samba Vulnerability : privilege escalation Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-1182 Debian Bug : 668309 It was discovered that Samba, the SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server, contained a flaw in the remote procedure call (RPC) code which allowed remote code execution as the super user from an unauthenticated connection. For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze7. For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.6.4-1. We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
