Samba - Remote hacker automatic control

Version: 3.0.24 and prior.
Technical Details:

Multiple vulnerabilities exist within the Samba networking tool, including remote code execution due to heap overflows, privilege escalation to root, and remote code execution through poor parameter handling.


The popular open source Samba networking tool (used to provide connection to Windows SMB/CIFS networking shares) has had a critical update released which addresses a number of vulnerabilities that could lead to remote attackers gaining complete control over a vulnerable system. Because of the popularity of the software, it is considered a serious threat that has the potential to affect many end users and administrators.


Update to Samba 3.0.25 at the earliest opportunity.
