HP9000 servers running CIFS/9000 Server (Samba) are vulnerable to buffer overflows in several command line options using the opt/cifsclient/bin/cifslogin utility. By passing an overly long argument to the -U, -D, -P, -S, -N, or -u command line option, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system.
