[slackware-security] samba (SSA:2017-195-02)


New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current

to fix a security issue.



Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:


patches/packages/samba-4.4.15-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.

This update fixes an authentication validation bypass security issue:

"Orpheus' Lyre mutual authentication validation bypass"

All versions of Samba from 4.0.0 onwards using embedded Heimdal

Kerberos are vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack impersonating

a trusted server, who may gain elevated access to the domain by

returning malicious replication or authorization data.

Samba binaries built against MIT Kerberos are not vulnerable.

For more information, see:



(* Security fix *)




Where to find the new packages:



Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab

(http://osuosl.org) for donating FTP and rsync hosting

to the Slackware project! :-)


Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for

additional mirror sites near you.
