Description

Jeremy Allison discovered that Samba incorrectly handled ACLs on symlink paths. A remote attacker could use this issue to overwrite the ownership of ACLs using symlinks. (CVE-2015-7560)

Garming Sam and Douglas Bagnall discovered that the Samba internal DNS server incorrectly handled certain DNS TXT records. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause Samba to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly obtain uninitialized memory contents. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 15.10. (CVE-2016-0771)

It was discovered that the Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) was vulnerable to clickjacking and cross-site request forgery attacks. This issue only affected Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. (CVE-2013-0213, CVE-2013-0214).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
