Debian Security Advisory
samba -- unsafe temp files
- Date Reported:
- 18 Nov 1998
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- No other external database security references currently available.
- More information:
There have been reports that some Linux distributions are affected by
a vulnerability in samba. There are two issues:
- the wsmbconf program (which is still a prototype application not meant for general release) is unsafe. Debian does not distribute this program.
- some distributions used a world-writable directory without a t bit. We use /var/tmp which does not suffer from this problem.
There is no need to upgrade your samba package.
