Debian DLA-1320-1 : samba security update
Low Nessus Plugin ID 108661
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues :
It was discovered that Samba is prone to a denial of service attack when the RPC spoolss service is configured to be run as an external daemon. Thanks for Jeremy Allison for the patch.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.6.6-6+deb7u16.
We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
