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

Low Nessus Plugin ID 70964


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.
