Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

A remote code execution flaw was found in Samba. A malicious authenticated

samba client, having write access to the samba share, could use this flaw to

execute arbitrary code as root. (CVE-2017-7494)

It was found that Samba always requested forwardable tickets when using Kerberos authentication. A service to which Samba authenticated using Kerberos could subsequently use the ticket to impersonate Samba to other services or domain users. (CVE-2016-2125)

A flaw was found in the way Samba handled PAC (Privilege Attribute Certificate) checksums. A remote, authenticated attacker could use this flaw to crash the winbindd process. (CVE-2016-2126)

A race condition was found in samba server. A malicious samba client could use this flaw to access files and directories, in areas of the server file system not exported under the share definitions.
(CVE-2017-2619)

Solution

Run 'yum update samba' to update your system.
