Description


Updated samba4 packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

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

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.

A flaw was found in the way Samba handled ACLs on symbolic links.
An authenticated user could use this flaw to gain access to an arbitrary
file or directory by overwriting its ACL. (CVE-2015-7560)

Red Hat would like to thank the Samba project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges Jeremy Allison (Google) and the Samba team as the
original reporters.

All samba4 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this
update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
