NewStart CGSL CORE 5.05 / MAIN 5.05 : samba Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2021-0167)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 154485


The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.05 / MAIN 5.05, has samba packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- All samba versions 4.9.x before 4.9.18, 4.10.x before 4.10.12 and 4.11.x before 4.11.5 have an issue where if it is set with log level = 3 (or above) then the string obtained from the client, after a failed character conversion, is printed. Such strings can be provided during the NTLMSSP authentication exchange.
In the Samba AD DC in particular, this may cause a long-lived process(such as the RPC server) to terminate. (In the file server case, the most likely target, smbd, operates as process-per-client and so a crash there is harmless). (CVE-2019-14907)

- A flaw was found in the way samba handled file and directory permissions. An authenticated user could use this flaw to gain access to certain file and directory information which otherwise would be unavailable to the attacker. (CVE-2020-14318)

- A null pointer dereference flaw was found in samba's Winbind service in versions before 4.11.15, before 4.12.9 and before 4.13.1. A local user could use this flaw to crash the winbind service causing denial of service. (CVE-2020-14323)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when an attacker establishes a vulnerable Netlogon secure channel connection to a domain controller, using the Netlogon Remote Protocol (MS-NRPC), aka 'Netlogon Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability'. (CVE-2020-1472)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL samba packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
