[SECURITY] [DLA 1754-1] samba security update

Package        : samba
Version        : 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u12
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-9461 CVE-2018-1050 CVE-2018-1057 CVE-2019-3880

Various vulnerabilities were discovered in Samba, SMB/CIFS file, print,
and login server/client for Unix


    smbd in Samba had a denial of service vulnerability (fd_open_atomic
    infinite loop with high CPU usage and memory consumption) due to
    wrongly handling dangling symlinks.


    Samba was vulnerable to a denial of service attack when the RPC
    spoolss service was configured to be run as an external daemon.
    Missing input sanitization checks on some of the input parameters to
    spoolss RPC calls could have caused the print spooler service to


    On a Samba 4 AD DC the LDAP server of Samba incorrectly validated
    permissions to modify passwords over LDAP allowing authenticated
    users to change any other users' passwords, including administrative
    users and privileged service accounts (eg Domain Controllers).

    Thanks to the Ubuntu security team for having backported the rather
    invasive changeset to Samba in Ubuntu 14.04 (which we could use to
    patch Samba in Debian jessie LTS).


    A flaw was found in the way Samba implemented an RPC endpoint
    emulating the Windows registry service API. An unprivileged attacker
    could have used this flaw to create a new registry hive file anywhere
    they had unix permissions which could have lead to creation of a new
    file in the Samba share.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
