openSUSE Security Update : samba (openSUSE-SU-2014:0405-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 75302


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Samba was updated to fix security issues and bugs :

Security issues fixed :

- Password lockout was not enforced for SAMR password changes, this allowed brute-force attacks on passwords.
CVE-2013-4496; (bnc#849224).

- The DCE-RPC fragment length field is incorrectly checked, which could expose samba clients to buffer overflow exploits caused by malicious servers;
CVE-2013-4408; (bnc#844720).

- The pam_winbind login without require_membership_of restrictions could allow fallbacks to local users even if they were not intended to be allowed; CVE-2012-6150;

Also non security bugs were fixed :

- Fix problem with server taking too long to respond to a MSG_PRINTER_DRVUPGRADE message; (bso#9942);

- Fix memory leak in printer_list_get_printer();
(bso#9993); (bnc#865561).

- Depend on %version-%release with all manual Provides and Requires; (bnc#844307).

- Remove superfluous obsoletes *-64bit in the ifarch ppc64 case; (bnc#437293).

- Fix Winbind 100% CPU utilization caused by domain list corruption; (bso#10358); (bnc#786677).

- Samba is chatty about being unable to open a printer;

- nsswitch: Fix short writes in winbind_write_sock;

- xattr: fix listing EAs on *BSD for non-root users;

- spoolss: accept XPS_PASS datatype used by Windows 8;

- The preceding bugs are tracked by (bnc#854520) too.

- Make use of the full gpg pub key file name including the key ID.

- Remove bogus libsmbclient0 package description and cleanup the libsmbclient line from baselibs.conf;

- Allow smbcacls to take a '--propagate-inheritance' flag to indicate that the add, delete, modify and set operations now support automatic propagation of inheritable ACE(s); (FATE#316474).

- Attempt to use samlogon validation level 6; (bso#7945);

- Recover from ncacn_ip_tcp ACCESS_DENIED/SEC_PKG_ERROR lsa errors; (bso#7944); (bnc#755663).

- Fix lsa_LookupSids3 and lsa_LookupNames4 arguments.
