RHSA-2009:1529 -- samba security update (Moderate)

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:29264

Updated samba packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Samba is a suite of programs used by machines to share files printers and other information. A denial of service flaw was found in the Samba smbd daemon. An authenticated remote user could send a specially-crafted response that would cause an smbd child process to enter an infinite loop. An authenticated remote user could use this flaw to exhaust system resources by opening multiple CIFS sessions. (CVE-2009-2906)
