For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit
<URL:http://www.freebsd.org/security/>.

I.   Background

smbfs is a network file-system used to access file servers using the
SMB/CIFS protocol.  chroot(2) is system call designed to limit a
process's access to a particular subset of a file-system.

II.  Problem Description

smbfs does not properly sanitize paths containing a backslash
character; in particular the directory name '..\' is interpreted as
the parent directory by the SMB/CIFS server, but smbfs handles it in
the same manner as any other directory.

III. Impact

When inside a chroot environment which resides on a smbfs mounted
file-system it is possible for an attacker to escape out of this
chroot to any other directory on the smbfs mounted file-system.

IV.  Workaround

Mount the smbfs file-systems which need to be used with chroot on top,
in a way so the chroot directory is exactly on the mount point and not
a sub directory.

V.   Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to 4-STABLE, 5-STABLE, or 6-STABLE,
or to the RELENG_6_1, RELENG_6_0, RELENG_5_5, RELENG_5_4, RELENG_5_3,
RELENG_4_11, or RELENG_4_10 security branch dated after the correction
date.

2) To patch your present system:

The following patches have been verified to apply to FreeBSD 4.10,
4.11, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 6.0, and 6.1 systems.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-06:16/smbfs.patch
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-06:16/smbfs.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch.

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile your kernel as described in
<URL:http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html> and reboot the
system.

VI.  Correction details

The following list contains the revision numbers of each file that was
corrected in FreeBSD.
