                        SCO Security Advisory

Subject:                OpenLinux: Various serious Samba vulnerabilities
Advisory number:        CSSA-2003-017.0
Issue date:             2003 May 02

______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        This update addresses the following Samba issues:

        A bug in the length checking for encrypted password change
        requests from clients could be exploited using a buffer
        overrun attack on the smbd stack.

        A vulnerability that could lead to an anonymous user gaining
        root access on a Samba serving system.

        A chown race condition that could allow overwriting of
        critical system files if exploited.

        A buffer overflow in the call_trans2open function in trans2.c
        allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

        Multiple buffer overflows that may allow remote attackers to
        execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Package
        ----------------------------------------------------------------------

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server          prior to libsmbclient-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to samba-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to samba-doc-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to smbfs-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to swat-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation     prior to libsmbclient-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to samba-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to samba-doc-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to smbfs-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm
                                        prior to swat-2.2.2-7.i386.rpm


3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
        customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
        cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
        packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
