CVE-2009-2948 (
  mount.cifs in Samba 3.0 before 3.0.37, 3.2 before 3.2.15, 3.3 before
  3.3.8 and 3.4 before 3.4.2, when mount.cifs is installed suid root,
  does not properly enforce permissions, which allows local users to
  read part of the credentials file and obtain the password by
  specifying the path to the credentials file and using the --verbose

Comment 3 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2009-11-02 11:13:02 UTC
All ebuilds are there:
samba-3.3.9.ebuild (plus split ebuilds)
samba-3.4.3.ebuild (plus split ebuilds)

only stable version was 3.0, so I suggest stabling 3.0.37.
Comment 4 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-04 02:34:49 UTC
