Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update provides Samba 4.6.7, which fixes the following issues :

- CVE-2017-11103: Metadata were being taken from the
unauthenticated plaintext (the Ticket) rather than the
authenticated and encrypted KDC response. (bsc#1048278)

- Fix cephwrap_chdir(). (bsc#1048790)

- Fix ctdb logs to /var/log/log.ctdb instead of
/var/log/ctdb. (bsc#1048339)

- Fix non-admin cephx authentication. (bsc#1048387)

- CTDB cannot start when there is no persistent database.
(bsc#1052577) The CTDB resource agent was also fixed to
not fail when the database is empty.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
