Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Andrew Bartlett discovered that Samba incorrectly handled delegation
of authority when being used as an Active Directory Domain Controller.
An attacker given delegation privileges could use this issue to
escalate their privileges further.

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

Solution :

Update the affected samba package.
