Mandriva Update for samba MDKSA-2007:224-1 (samba)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
The samba developers discovered that nmbd could be made to overrun a buffer during the processing of GETDC logon server requests. If samba is configured as a Primary or Backup Domain Controller, this could be used by a remote attacker to send malicious logon requests and possibly cause a denial of service (CVE-2007-4572). As well, Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research found that nmbd did not properly check the length of netbios packets. If samba is configured as a WINS server, this could be used by a remote attacker able to send multiple crafted requests to nmbd, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with root privileges (CVE-2007-5398). Update: The patch that fixed CVE-2007-4572 introduced a regression that would prevent shares from being mounted properly and would cause the remote (patched) smbd to crash. This update contains another fix from upstream to correct the problem.
