Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2007-05-11 09:07:42 UTC
According to Samba:

"Various bugs in Samba's NDR parsing can allow a user
to send specially crafted MS-RPC requests that will
overwrite the heap space with user defined data."

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.
