Samba 3.6.x < 3.6.6 Remote Security Bypass
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 67118
SynopsisThe remote Samba server is affected by a remote security bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of Samba 3.6.x running on the remote host is earlier than 3.6.6, and as such, it is potentially affected by a remote security bypass vulnerability because it fails to properly enforce CIFS share attributes.
This may allow a remote, authenticated attacker to write to read-only shares, impact integrity related to oplock, locking, coherency, or leases or leases attributes.
Note that Nessus has not actually tried to exploit this issue or otherwise determine if the patch or workaround has been applied.
SolutionEither install the patch referenced in the project's advisory or upgrade to 3.6.6 or later.
