FreeBSD : samba -- Private key in key.pem world readable (479efd57-516e-11e3-9b62-000c292e4fd8)

low Nessus Plugin ID 70964
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The Samba project reports :

Samba 4.0.x before 4.0.11 and 4.1.x before 4.1.1, when LDAP or HTTP is provided over SSL, uses world-readable permissions for a private key, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading the key file, as demonstrated by access to the local filesystem on an AD domain controller.


Update the affected packages.
