    samba vulnerability

    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

    • Ubuntu 17.04
    • Ubuntu 16.10
    • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

    Samba could allow unintended access to network services.

    Software description

    • samba - SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix

    USN-3353-1 fixed a vulnerability in Heimdal. This update provides
    the corresponding update for Samba.

    Jeffrey Altman, Viktor Dukhovni, and Nicolas Williams discovered
    that Samba clients incorrectly trusted unauthenticated portions of
    Kerberos tickets. A remote attacker could use this to impersonate
    trusted network servers or perform other attacks.
