Samba 3.x < 3.3.13 SMB1 Packet Chaining Memory Corruption

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5572
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 service is affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.


Versions of Samba 3.x earlier than 3.3.13 are potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability when handling specially crafted SMB1 packets. A remote unauthenticated attacker, exploiting this flaw, could crash the affected service or potentially execute arbitrary code subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.


Upgrade to Samba 3.3.13 or later.
