Samba < 3.6.20 / 4.0.11 / 4.1.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8288
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.

Synopsis

The remote version of Samba is outdated and thus affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

Versions of Samba older than 3.6.20 / 4.0.11 / 4.1.1 are unpatched for the following two vulnerabilities:

- Private key for SSL/TLS encryption is stored in a 'key.pem' file with world-readable permissions, which can allow a local attacker to extract sensitive information and decrypt network traffic. (CVE-2013-4476)

- Versions of Samba 3.2.0 and above do not check the underlying file or directory ACL when opening an alternate data stream. (CVE-2013-4475)

Solution

Install the patch referenced in the project's advisory, or upgrade to 3.6.20 / 4.0.11 / 4.1.1 or older.
