Samba is a suite of SMB and CIFS client/server programs for UNIX.
Samba contains a logical error in the smbd daemon when translating
local SID to user names (CVE-2007-2444). Furthermore, Samba contains
several bugs when parsing NDR encoded RPC parameters (CVE-2007-2446).
Lastly, Samba fails to properly sanitize remote procedure input
provided via Microsoft Remote Procedure Calls (CVE-2007-2447).
<impact type="high">
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to gain root
privileges via various vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-fs/samba-3.0.24-r2&quot;</code>
