Details

It was discovered that Samba did not properly perform bounds checking
in certain operations. A remote attacker could possibly exploit this to
read arbitrary memory contents of the smb process, which could contain
sensitive infomation or possibly have other impacts, such as a denial of
service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
