Microsoft has brought out a patch (MS08-068) for the SMB protocol. This patch, patches a flaw which is over 7 years old in the SMB of Windows.
I have a Fedora 9 Samba server running and Windows XP / Vista Clients. Does anyone have any information as to possible problems applying this patch?
Since the patch changes the way SMB authentification is checked / done, I am worried that my clients will not be able to reach their samba shares.
I can now confirm. On Vista x64 with the above mentioned Windows Patch - Samba connection will not work.
Uninstalling the Patch and everything works fine again.
