Multiple Potential Buffer Overruns in Samba


Evgeny Demidov discovered that the Samba server has a buffer overflow in the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) on decoding Base64 data during HTTP Basic Authentication. Versions 3.0.2 through 3.0.4 are affected.

Another buffer overflow bug has been found in the code used to support the "mangling method = hash" smb.conf option. The default setting for this parameter is "mangling method = hash2" and therefore not vulnerable. Versions between 2.2.0 through 2.2.9 and 3.0.0 through 3.0.4 are affected.
