If you move to the version of Samba with the security updates, this 
bug will be fixed, too:


Security Release -- Samba 3.0.5 Available for Download

                 Release Notes for Samba 3.0.5
                         July 20, 2004

######################## SECURITY RELEASE ########################

Summary:       Multiple Potential Buffer Overruns in Samba 3.0.x
CVE ID:        CAN-2004-0600, CAN-2004-0686

This is the latest stable release of Samba. This is the version
that production Samba servers should be running for all current

It has been confirmed that versions of Samba 3 prior to v3.0.5
are vulnerable to two potential buffer overruns.  The individual
details are given below.

Comment 5 Jay Fenlason 2004-07-22 10:00:07 EDT
3.0.5 == 3.0.4 plus a pair of security fixes.  This error is not 
fixed by 3.0.5.  It is fixed in the samba-3.0.6rc1 (formerly 
3.0.5rc1 before this security mess happened) sources that will be 
avaliable later. 
Comment 6 Dennis DeDonatis 2004-08-23 09:14:55 EDT
It seems to be fixed in 3.0.6 released on 2004-08-19.


I loaded up the 3.0.6 Fedora Core 2 RPMS from 
/ and XP backup seems to be working fine.

Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 11:50:47 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 8 Thomas M Steenholdt 2005-04-26 14:38:08 EDT
This has been working for me for a while now - Please close, unless other people
are still seing these issues!
