Package : samba
CVE ID : CVE-2015-7560 CVE-2016-0771
Debian Bug : 812429

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:


Jeremy Allison of Google, Inc. and the Samba Team discovered that
Samba incorrectly handles getting and setting ACLs on a symlink
path. An authenticated malicious client can use SMB1 UNIX extensions
to create a symlink to a file or directory, and then use non-UNIX
SMB1 calls to overwrite the contents of the ACL on the file or
directory linked to.


Garming Sam and Douglas Bagnall of Catalyst IT discovered that Samba
is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds read issue during DNS TXT record
handling, if Samba is deployed as an AD DC and chosen to run the
internal DNS server. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to
cause a denial of service (Samba crash), or potentially, to allow
leakage of memory from the server in the form of a DNS TXT reply.

Additionally this update includes a fix for a regression introduced due
to the upstream fix for CVE-2015-5252 in DSA-3433-1 in setups where the
share path is '/'.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u7. The oldstable distribution (wheezy) is not
affected by CVE-2016-0771.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 2:4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb8u2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2:4.3.6+dfsg-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
