Samba 3.6.6 < 3.6.25 Memory Disclosure

low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8752
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The remote version of Samba is outdated and affected by a memory disclosure vulnerability.

Description

An error exists related to GET_SHADOW_COPY_DATA() and FSCTL_SRV_ENUMERATE_SNAPSHOTS() request handling in which the SRV_SNAPSHOT_ARRAY response field is not properly initialized. Therefore, configurations with 'shadow_copy' or 'shadow-copy2' specified for the 'vfs objects' parameter can allow the disclosure of uninitialized memory contents.

Solution

Upgrade to 3.6.25 or later.
