I have received this warning from a friend. I though he was joking with me, but
there it is plain as day on symantec's virus library. This affects samba 2.2.8a
Here's the blurb:
Linux.Sorso is a worm that replicates using a Samba buffer overflow exploit. The
worm targets vulnerable installations of the Samba server version 2.2.8a and
earlier, version 2.0.10 and earlier, and Samba-TNG version 0.3.2 and earlier.
The worm also contains code for a backdoor and a Distributed Denial of Service
(DDoS) attack and only affects Linux running on Intel x86 platforms.
And the URL:
Is the version supplied by symantec incorrect? I remember there was a possible
problem with 2.2.8, and this looks like it.
thanks in advance...
