don't know if this is the right place to ask, but here it goes:
i was notified by one of my users (!) about the recent samba vulnerability
(CAN-2004-0930 ) that this is indeed easily "exploitable" by just
issuing commands with long wildcard-patterns in the filename part, just as:
<smb-share>:\> dir ******.exe
ok, my smbd went crazy and the "dir" command was waiting for the result.
but: when i mounted the smb-share under linux (mount -t smbfs ....) and
$ ls /mnt/smb-share/*******.exe
"ls" returned *instantly* with "No such file or directory" and smbd did
not go crazy. now i ask myself: how comes?
thank you for comments,
BOFH excuse #120:
we just switched to FDDI.
