Title:RedHat Update for samba RHSA-2017:2789-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'samba'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'samba'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Samba is an open-source implementation of
the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol and the related Common Internet File System
(CIFS) protocol, which allow PC-compatible machines to share files, printers, and
various information.

Security Fix(es):

* A race condition was found in samba server. A malicious samba client
could use this flaw to access files and directories in areas of the server
file system not exported under the share definitions. (CVE-2017-2619)

* It was found that samba did not enforce 'SMB signing' when certain
configuration options were enabled. A remote attacker could launch a
man-in-the-middle attack and retrieve information in plain-text.

* An information leak flaw was found in the way SMB1 protocol was
implemented by Samba. A malicious client could use this flaw to dump server
memory contents to a file on the samba share or to a shared printer, though
the exact area of server memory cannot be controlled by the attacker.
