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

high Nessus Plugin ID 90623
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.


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.
