Samba 3.6.x < 3.6.6 Remote Security Bypass

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6930


The remote Samba server is affected by a remote security bypass vulnerability


According to its banner, the version of Samba 3.6.x running on the remote host is earlier than 3.6.x. It is, therefore, affected by a remote security bypass vulnerability because it fails to properly enforce CIFS share attributes.

This may allow a remote, authenticated attacker to write to read-only shares, impact integrity related to oplock, locking, coherency, or leases or leases attributes


Either install the patch referenced in the project's advisory or upgrade to 3.6.6 or later.
