: Need upgrade to Samba on LS-X3
: glescano June 07, 2018, 12:00:20 PM
Anyone know if it's possible to upgrade Samba to a version 4.2.11 or higher?  My IT security found a Vulnerability with Samba.  But apparently there's no more firmware update for this.  I wanted to know what Buffalo think we should do about this.

Samba Badlock Vulnerability
The version of Samba, a CIFS/SMB server for Linux and Unix, running on the remote host is affected by a flaw, known as Badlock, that exists in the Security Account Manager (SAM) and Local Security Authority (Domain Policy) (LSAD) protocols due to improper authentication level negotiation over Remote Procedure Call (RPC) channels. A man-in-the-middle attacker who is able to able to intercept the traffic between a client and a server hosting a SAM database can exploit this flaw to force a downgrade of the authentication level, which allows the execution of arbitrary Samba network calls in the context of the intercepted user, such as viewing or modifying sensitive security data in the Active Directory (AD) database or disabling critical services.
Upgrade to Samba version 4.2.11 / 4.3.8 / 4.4.2 or later.

compiling samba 4.8.2 on the nas is not so easy

i am stopping on
/mnt/array1/share/samba-4.8.2/wscript: error: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/mnt/array1/share/samba-4.8.2/third_party/waf/wafadmin/Utils.py", line 308, in load_module

but on FW 1.74 you have
smbd -V
Version 3.6.3-31a.osstech

Samba 3.6 (almost) fully supports SMB2 (verified).
