SUSE SLES11 Security Update : Samba (SUSE-SU-2014:0723-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 83623


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This is a LTSS roll-up update for the Samba Server suite fixing multiple security issues and bugs.

Security issues fixed :

- CVE-2013-4496: Password lockout was not enforced for SAMR password changes, leading to brute force possibility.

- CVE-2013-4408: DCE-RPC fragment length field is incorrectly checked.

- CVE-2013-4124: Samba was affected by a denial of service attack on authenticated or guest connections.

- CVE-2013-0214: The SWAT webadministration was affected by a cross site scripting attack (XSS).

- CVE-2013-0213: The SWAT webadministration could possibly be used in clickjacking attacks.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
