Description Chris Shelton 2012-04-10 17:52:16 UTC
Recently announced at http://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2012-1182: "Samba 3.0.x to 3.6.3 are affected by a vulnerability that allows remote code execution as the "root" user. Samba 3.6.4, Samba 3.5.14 and 3.4.16 have been issued as security releases to correct the defect." ... "As this does not require an authenticated connection it is the most serious vulnerability possible in a program, and users and vendors are encouraged to patch their Samba installations immediately."

Thanks for the bug, Chris, appreciate it. @samba, from the upstream advisory at $URL: Additionally, Samba 3.6.4, Samba 3.5.14 and 3.4.16 have been issued as security releases to correct the defect. Patches against older Samba versions are available at:

This bug has replaced a net-fs/samba-3.6.3 STABLEREQ bug, but as I said, I think 3.5.14 has a chance of being stabilised sooner and for a critical security issue like this, that's important IMO.

Thanks, guys. Arches, please test and mark stable: =net-fs/samba-3.5.14 Target keywords : "alpha amd64 arm hppa ia64 ppc ppc64 s390 sh sparc x86"
Comment 5 Andreas Schürch 2012-04-11 07:51:04 UTC
x86 stable, thanks.

Comment 8 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) 2012-04-11 15:24:57 UTC
Why are keywords missing on 3.6.*? Someone should file a keywording bug for that. Stable for HPPA.

I feel tempted to close that bug and reopen one that includes both sys-libs/ldb and net-fs/samba

CVE-2012-1182 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2012-1182): The RPC code generator in Samba 3.x before 3.4.16, 3.5.x before 3.5.14, and 3.6.x before 3.6.4 does not implement validation of an array length in a manner consistent with validation of array memory allocation, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted RPC call.

This issue was resolved and addressed in GLSA 201206-22 at http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-201206-22.xml by GLSA coordinator Sean Amoss (ackle).
