Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-07-14 10:54:36 UTC
It was found that the different user screens (HTML forms) of the Samba Web Administration Tool suite were missing protection against cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL, which once visited by an authenticated Samba SWAT user could lead to unauthorized commands execution with the privileges of that user (for example shut down or start the samba daemons, add or remove shares, printers, user accounts if the victim authenticated as privileged user to Samba SWAT).
