Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file,
print, and login server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following issues:

CVE-2016-2119

    Stefan Metzmacher discovered that client-side SMB2/3 required
    signing can be downgraded, allowing a man-in-the-middle attacker to
    impersonate a server being connected to by Samba, and return
    malicious results.

CVE-2016-2123

    Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative and Frederic Besler discovered
    that the routine ndr_pull_dnsp_name, used to parse data from the
    Samba Active Directory ldb database, contains an integer overflow
    flaw, leading to an attacker-controlled memory overwrite. An
    authenticated user can take advantage of this flaw for remote
    privilege escalation.

CVE-2016-2125

    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.

CVE-2016-2126

    Volker Lendecke discovered several flaws in the Kerberos PAC
    validation. A remote, authenticated, attacker can cause the winbindd
    process to crash using a legitimate Kerberos ticket due to incorrect
    handling of the PAC checksum. A local service with access to the
    winbindd privileged pipe can cause winbindd to cache elevated access
    permissions.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u2. In addition, this update contains
several changes originally targeted for the upcoming jessie point
release.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
