URGENT FreeNAS 8.0.4 and earlier may be affected by a critical Samba vulnerability -
I just got this version and installed it. (side topic it wasn't too bad for a person who has never used linux) Then found this in the main page:
FreeNAS 8.0.4 and earlier may be affected by a critical Samba vulnerability - all users who use CIFS are urged to update.
Can someone please advise what the update is? As the current release I used was FreeNAS-8.0.4-RELEASE-p1-x86.iso
Old news, check the announcements (or the README/Release Notes for 8.04-p1). FreeNAS-8.0.4-RELEASE-p1 is the fix.

thanks for moving my thread
Sorry mate i'm a complete noob at this open source stuff, and just getting started in it.
I didn't realise that there was a difference between "FreeNAS 8.0.4 and earlier" and FreeNAS-8.0.4-RELEASE-p1.
They read as the same thing to me.

Samba has released another release that addresses a critical vulnerability, we'll be pushing out a FreeNAS 8.0.4-RELEASE-p2 to address this very shortly.
I'm just holing up because there are rumors of a FreeBSd security advisory tomorrow, and it would be nice to kill two birds with one stone.
