Comment 1 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-05-11 05:07:42 EDT
According to Samba:

"Various bugs in Samba's NDR parsing can allow a user
to send specially crafted MS-RPC requests that will
overwrite the heap space with user defined data."

These will affect Samba as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, 4, 5.

Acknowledgements:

Red Hat would like to thank the Samba developers, TippingPoint, and iDefense for reporting these issues.
