Package name:      samba
Summary:              Symlink bug / tmpfile bug. 
Date:                    2004-05-01
Affected versions:  Netwosix 1.1 Netwosix 1.1

- -> Package description:
- ------------------------
Samba is an Open Source/Free Software suite that provides seamless file and 
print services to SMB/CIFS clients. Samba is freely available under the GNU 
General Public License.

- -> Problem description:
- ------------------------
Included with the immensely popular Samba Package, there is a small script 
called 'smbprint', which is quite widely used to print documents over shares. 
There are many versions of the script floating about - older versions of the 
script are more vulnerable than the smbprint script included with the latest 
release of Samba (3.0.2a). Attacker's can write to arbitrary files, and in 
theory, elevate privileges.

- ------------------------
  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.

  package, you may want to remove it from your system.

- ---------------------------------
Linux Netwosix is a powerful and optimized Linux distribution for servers
and Network Security related jobs.  It can also be used for special operations
such as penetration testing with its big collection of security oriented
software and sources. It's a light distribution created for the requirements
of every SysAdmin and it's very portable and highly configurable. Our
philosophy is to give greater liberty for  configuration to the SysAdmin.
Only in this way can he/she configure a powerful and stable server machine.
Linux Netwosix also has a powerful ports system (Nepote) similar to the xBSD
systems but more flexible and usable.
