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

medium Nessus Plugin ID 83629
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Alternatively you can run the command listed for your product :

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 LTSS :
