Description Mark J. Cox 2007-05-11 05:11:48 EDT
According to Samba:

"Unescaped user input parameters are passed as arguments to /bin/sh allowing for
remote command execution."

This could be triggered by a remote user if the server uses the non-default
"username map script" smb.conf option, or via remote file and printer management
scripts with an authenticated user.

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


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

Note the non-default "username map script" option only exists on Enterprise Linux 5
