RHEL 6 / 7 : Storage Server (RHSA-2016:1494)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

An update for samba is now available for Red Hat Gluster Storage 3.1
for RHEL 6 and Red Hat Gluster Storage 3.1 for RHEL 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Samba is an open source implementation of the Server Message Block
(SMB) protocol and the related Common Internet File System (CIFS)
protocol, which allow PC-compatible machines to share files, printers,
and various information.

Security Fix(es) :

* A flaw was found in the way Samba initiated signed DCE/RPC
connections. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to
downgrade the connection to not use signing and therefore impersonate
the server. (CVE-2016-2119)

Red Hat would like to thank the Samba project for reporting this
issue. Upstream acknowledges Stefan Metzmacher as the original
reporter.
