- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2014-0178, CVE-2014-0244, CVE-2014-3493.
- More information:
Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and fixed in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server:
Information leak vulnerability in the VFS code, allowing an authenticated user to retrieve eight bytes of uninitialized memory when shadow copy is enabled.
Denial of service (infinite CPU loop) in the nmbd Netbios name service daemon. A malformed packet can cause the nmbd server to enter an infinite loop, preventing it to process later requests to the Netbios name service.
Denial of service (daemon crash) in the smbd file server daemon. An authenticated user attempting to read a Unicode path using a non-Unicode request can force the daemon to overwrite memory at an invalid address.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u4.
For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 2:4.1.9+dfsg-1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2:4.1.9+dfsg-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
