Description Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-11-12 09:33:30 UTC
From ${URL} :


Two security issues have been reported in Samba, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose certain sensitive information and by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions.

1) The application does not properly apply access control list permissions when accessing alternate streams of a file or a directory. This can be exploited to e.g. disclose contents of otherwise inaccessible alternate streams.

Successful exploitation requires the "vfs_streams_depot" or "vfs_streams_xattr" module to be loaded (not loaded by default).

This security issue is reported in versions prior to 3.6.20, 4.0.11, and 4.1.1.

2) The application creates private keys that are used for the SSL/TLS encryption for ldaps with insecure world-readable permissions. This can be exploited to disclose the keys and subsequently e.g. disclose or manipulate HTTPS traffic.

Successful exploitation requires the "server services" option to contain "web" (does not contain by default).

This security issue is reported in versions prior to 4.0.11 and 4.1.1.

Update to version 3.6.20, 4.0.11, or 4.1.1.

CVE-2013-4476 (
  Samba 4.0.x before 4.0.11 and 4.1.x before 4.1.1, when LDAP or HTTP is
  provided over SSL, uses world-readable permissions for a private key, which
  allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading the key file,
  as demonstrated by access to the local filesystem on an AD domain

CVE-2013-4475 (
  Samba 3.x before 3.6.20, 4.0.x before 4.0.11, and 4.1.x before 4.1.1, when
  vfs_streams_depot or vfs_streams_xattr is enabled, allows remote attackers
  to bypass intended file restrictions by leveraging ACL differences between a
  file and an associated alternate data stream (ADS).
