Samba SID Parsing Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Samba is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in a denial of service.

Samba versions prior to 3.5.5 are vulnerable.
