Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99794
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the samba packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- A flaw was found in the way Samba initiated signed DCE/RPC connections. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to downgrade the connection to not use signing and therefore impersonate the server.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected samba package.
