Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2007:0354 0 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Critical: samba security update 2008-01-09 19:22:18 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2007-05-11 09:11:48 UTC
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.

Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2007-05-14 09:25:21 UTC
Note the non-default "username map script" option only exists on Enterprise Linux 5

Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2007-05-14 14:05:20 UTC
removing embargo, now public
