Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Samba, the worst of which
may allow execution of arbitrary code with root privileges.

Background
==========

Samba is a suite of SMB and CIFS client/server programs.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-fs/samba                 < 3.5.15                  >= 3.5.15

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

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with root
privileges, cause a Denial of Service condition, take ownership of
shared files, or bypass file permissions. Furthermore, a local attacker
may be able to cause a Denial of Service condition or obtain sensitive
information in a Samba credentials file.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Samba users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/samba-3.5.15"
