Scientific Linux Security Update : samba4 on SL6.x i386/x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 104868


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Security Fix(es) :

- A use-after-free flaw was found in the way samba servers handled certain SMB1 requests. An unauthenticated attacker could send specially crafted SMB1 requests to cause the server to crash or execute arbitrary code.

- A memory disclosure flaw was found in samba. An attacker could retrieve parts of server memory, which could contain potentially sensitive data, by sending specially crafted requests to the samba server. (CVE-2017-15275)
