Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1374-1
February 24, 2012

samba vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 8.04 LTS


Samba could be made to crash or run programs if it received specially
crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- samba: SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix


Andy Davis discovered that Samba incorrectly handled certain AndX offsets.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to the server and
cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  samba                           3.0.28a-1ubuntu4.17

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
