Description Josh Bressers 2007-10-30 18:38:27 UTC
Secunia reported a buffer overflow flaw in Samba's reply_netbios_packet() function.

According to Secunia:
    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.


Red Hat would like to thank Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research for responsibly disclosing this issue.
