Time to upgrade Samba
Posted on: 03/16/2003 02:01 PM

Thanks Toby. From the Samba website:
(14th Mar, 2003) Security Release - Samba 2.2.8

A flaw has been detected in the Samba main smbd code which could allow an external attacker to remotely and anonymously gain Super User (root) privileges on a server running a Samba server. This flaw exists in previous versions of Samba from 2.0.x to 2.2.7a inclusive. This is a serious problem and all sites should either upgrade to Samba 2.2.8 immediately or prohibit access to TCP ports 139 and 445.
