           Summary: Samba 3.4.1 Requires a security update.
           Product: Codex
           Version: stable grimoire
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: net
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: gsherwood at sourcemage.org

According to http://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-3.4.2.html

Three security issues are fixed in samba 3.4.2

This is a security release in order to address CVE-2009-2813, CVE-2009-2948
and CVE-2009-2906.

   o CVE-2009-2813:
     In all versions of Samba later than 3.0.11, connecting to the home
     share of a user will use the root of the filesystem
     as the home directory if this user is misconfigured to have
     an empty home directory in /etc/passwd.

   o CVE-2009-2948:
     If mount.cifs is installed as a setuid program, a user can pass it a
     credential or password path to which he or she does not have access and
     then use the --verbose option to view the first line of that file.
     All known Samba versions are affected.

   o CVE-2009-2906:
     Specially crafted SMB requests on authenticated SMB connections can
     send smbd into a 100% CPU loop, causing a DoS on the Samba server.
