The file server Samba has been updated to fix the following security problem: Secunia research discovered vulnerability in Samba, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system. The vulnerability is due to a boundary error within the " receive_smb_raw()" function in lib/util_sock.c when parsing SMB packets. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via an overly large SMB packet received in a client context.
