Applies to: Centrify-Enabled Samba 3.3.9-4.3.1-145 or lower

Does the Samba security alert - CVE-2010-3069 (below) affect Centrify-Enabled Samba ?

All current released versions of Samba are vulnerable to a buffer overrun vulnerability. The sid_parse() function (and related dom_sid_parse() function in the source4 code)do not correctly check their input lengths when reading a binary representation of a Windows SID (Security ID). This allows a malicious client to send a sid that can overflow the stack variable that is being used to store the SID in the Samba smbd server.

A connection to a file share is needed to exploit this vulnerability, either authenticated or unauthenticated (guest connection).

CVE-2010-3069 affects all versions of Samba from 3.0 to 3.5 hence our current Centrify-Enabled Samba 3.3.9-4.3.1-145 is also affected and needs to be patched. We are currently working to deliver a patched samba release as soon as possible. An email notification will be sent to all customer as soon as it is available.
