SUSE SLES11 Security Update : Samba (SUSE-SU-2014:0839-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83629


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


Samba was updated to fix a security issue :

Samba, when vfs_streams_depot or vfs_streams_xattr is enabled, allows remote attackers to bypass intended file restrictions by leveraging ACL differences between a file and an associated alternate data stream (ADS). (CVE-2013-4475)

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.
