Multiple format string vulnerabilities in client/client.c in smbclient
in Samba 3.2.0 through 3.2.12 might allow context-dependent attackers
to execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers in a filename.

Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2009-06-25 12:51:49 UTC
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and earlier provide Samba 3.0.x which is not vulnerable to this issue.

This issue is also caught by fortify source on Fedora and as a result is a non-issue.
