Samba < 3.5.21 / 3.6.12 / 4.0.2 SWAT Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 64459


The remote Samba server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the version of Samba running on the remote host is 3.5.x prior to 3.5.21, 3.6.x prior to 3.6.12, or 4.x prior to 4.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) that allows a remote attacker to conduct clickjacking attacks via a FRAME or IFRAME element. (CVE-2013-0213)

- A cross-site request forgery vulnerability exists due to a failure to require multiple steps or explicit confirmation for sensitive transactions in the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT). A remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to follow a crafted URL, to cause the user to perform unintended actions.

Note that these vulnerabilities are only exploitable when SWAT is enabled, and it is not enabled by default. Additionally, note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Samba version 3.5.21 / 3.6.12 / 4.0.2 or later.
Alternatively, install the patch referenced in the vendor advisory.
