FreeBSD : samba -- multiple vulnerabilities (03e48bf5-a96d-11e3-a556-3c970e169bc2)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72954


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


Samba project reports :

In Samba's SAMR server we neglect to ensure that attempted password changes will update the bad password count, nor set the lockout flags.
This would allow a user unlimited attempts against the password by simply calling ChangePasswordUser2 repeatedly.

This is available without any other authentication.

smbcacls can remove a file or directory ACL by mistake.


Update the affected packages.
