high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8075
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 Samba server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the version of Samba running on this system (i.e., earlier than 3.6.22 / 4.0.13 / 4.1.3) contain the following known vulnerabilities:

- A security bypass vulnerability via the 'winbind_name_list_to_sid_string_list()' that would allow a malicious authenticated user to modify the 'pam_winbind' configuration file. (CVE-2012-6150)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the 'dcerpc_read_ncacn_packet_done()' function that can allow remote AD domain controllers to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-4408)

- ACLs were not checked when opening files with alternate data streams, though this issue is only exploitable if the VFS modules vfs_streams_depot and/or vfs_streams_xattr are used. (CVE-2013-4475)


Install the patch referenced in the project's advisory, or upgrade to 3.6.22 / 4.0.13 / 4.1.3 or later.
