Debian DLA-1607-1 : samba security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 119694

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several 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 :

CVE-2018-14629

Florian Stuelpner discovered that Samba is vulnerable to infinite query recursion caused by CNAME loops, resulting in denial of service.

CVE-2018-16851

Garming Sam of the Samba Team and Catalyst discovered a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability in the Samba AD DC LDAP server allowing a user able to read more than 256MB of LDAP entries to crash the Samba AD DC's LDAP server.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u11.

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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
