Description Josh Bressers 2004-07-20 10:12:28 EDT
Affected Versions:      Samba 3.0.0 and later

A buffer overrun has been located in the code used to support
the 'mangling method = hash' smb.conf option.  Please be aware
that the default setting for this parameter is 'mangling method
= hash2' and therefore not vulnerable.

Affected Samba 3 installations can avoid this possible security
bug by using the default hash2 mangling method.  Server
installations requiring the hash mangling method are encouraged
to upgrade to Samba 3.0.5.  There are no known exploits for the

RHEL3 is covered by bug 128227

Jay, what's the status on this issue?
Comment 4 Jay Fenlason 2004-08-19 16:31:50 EDT
_A_ built 3.0.5 based RPMS for fedora testing.  As soon as 3.0.6 
comes out (tonight?), I'll build it for fedora updates.
