Synopsis
========

Samba is vulnerable to a remote denial of service attack due to out of
sequence print change notification requests.

Background
==========

Samba is a freely available SMB/CIFS implementation which allows
seamless interoperability of file and print services to other SMB/CIFS
clients.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package       /  Vulnerable  /                         Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-fs/samba       < 3.0.6                               >= 3.0.6

Description
===========

Due to a bug in the printer_notify_info() function, authorized users
could potentially crash the Samba server by sending improperly handled
print change notification requests in an invalid order. Windows XP SP2
clients can trigger this behavior by sending a
FindNextPrintChangeNotify() request before previously sending a
FindFirstPrintChangeNotify() request.

Impact
======

A remote authorized user could potentially crash a Samba server after
issuing these out of sequence requests.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=net-fs/samba-3.0.6"
    # emerge ">=net-fs/samba-3.0.6"
