Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: samba4 security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2017:0744-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017-0744.html
Issue date: 2017-03-21
CVE Names: CVE-2016-2125 CVE-2016-2126
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for samba4 is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

Samba is an open-source implementation of the Server Message Block (SMB) or
Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol, which allows PC-compatible
machines to share files, printers, and other information.

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that Samba always requested forwardable tickets when using
Kerberos authentication. A service to which Samba authenticated using
Kerberos could subsequently use the ticket to impersonate Samba to other
services or domain users. (CVE-2016-2125)

* A flaw was found in the way Samba handled PAC (Privilege Attribute
Certificate) checksums. A remote, authenticated attacker could use this
flaw to crash the winbindd process. (CVE-2016-2126)

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.9 Release Notes and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9
Technical Notes linked from the References section.
