<description>
<p>
During an internal audit the Samba team discovered that a flaw in the
way Samba stores share connection requests could lead to a Denial of
Service.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
By sending a large amount of share connection requests to a vulnerable
Samba server, an attacker could cause a Denial of Service due to memory
consumption.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-fs/samba-3.0.22-r3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
