SUSE SLES10 Security Update : samba (SUSE-SU-2016:1105-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 90623


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


Samba was updated to fix three security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

CVE-2016-2110: A man-in-the-middle could have downgraded NTLMSSP authentication (bso#11688, bsc#973031).

CVE-2016-2111: Domain controller netlogon member computer could have been spoofed (bso#11749, bsc#973032).

CVE-2015-5252: Insufficient symlink verification (allowed file access outside the share) (bso#11395, bnc#958582).

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

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.
