Description Mark J. Cox 2003-03-17 10:00:02 UTC
Sebastian Krahmer discovered a security vulnerability present
in unpatched versions of Samba prior to 2.2.8. An anonymous user could use
the vulnerability to gain root access on the target machine.
This is CAN-2003-0085

Additionally, a race condition could allow an attacker to overwrite
critical system files.
This is CAN-2003-0086

Updated packages for Red Hat Linux 6.2, 7, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and 8.0 will be
available shortly at RHSA-2003:095
