- Date Reported:
- 02 Jan 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-2125.
- More information:
Simo Sorce of Red Hat discovered that the Samba client code always requests a forwardable ticket when using Kerberos authentication. A target server, which must be in the current or trusted domain/realm, is given a valid general purpose Kerberos
Ticket Granting Ticket(TGT), which can be used to fully impersonate the authenticated user or service.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u11.
We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
