Package : samba CVE ID : CVE-2016-2119 CVE-2016-2123 CVE-2016-2125 CVE-2016-2126 Debian Bug : 830195

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:


Stefan Metzmacher discovered that client-side SMB2/3 required
signing can be downgraded, allowing a man-in-the-middle attacker to
impersonate a server being connected to by Samba, and return
malicious results.


Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative and Frederic Besler discovered
that the routine ndr_pull_dnsp_name, used to parse data from the
Samba Active Directory ldb database, contains an integer overflow
flaw, leading to an attacker-controlled memory overwrite. An
authenticated user can take advantage of this flaw for remote
privilege escalation.


Simo Sorce of Red Hat discovered that the Samba client code always
requests a forwardable ticket when using Kerberos authentication. A
target server, which must be in the current or trusted domain/realm,
is given a valid general purpose Kerberos "Ticket Granting Ticket"
(TGT), which can be used to fully impersonate the authenticated user
or service.


Volker Lendecke discovered several flaws in the Kerberos PAC
validation. A remote, authenticated, attacker can cause the winbindd
process to crash using a legitimate Kerberos ticket due to incorrect
handling of the PAC checksum. A local service with access to the
winbindd privileged pipe can cause winbindd to cache elevated access

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u2. In addition, this update contains several changes originally targeted for the upcoming jessie point release.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
