[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2022-351-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-4.15.13-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes security issues:
  This is the Samba CVE for the Windows Kerberos RC4-HMAC Elevation of
  Privilege Vulnerability disclosed by Microsoft on Nov 8 2022.
  A Samba Active Directory DC will issue weak rc4-hmac session keys for
  use between modern clients and servers despite all modern Kerberos
  implementations supporting the aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96 cipher.
  On Samba Active Directory DCs and members
  'kerberos encryption types = legacy'
  would force rc4-hmac as a client even if the server supports
  aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96 and/or aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96.
  This is the Samba CVE for the Windows Kerberos Elevation of Privilege
  Vulnerability disclosed by Microsoft on Nov 8 2022.
  A service account with the special constrained delegation permission
  could forge a more powerful ticket than the one it was presented with.
  The "RC4" protection of the NetLogon Secure channel uses the same
  algorithms as rc4-hmac cryptography in Kerberos, and so must also be
  assumed to be weak.
  Since the Windows Kerberos RC4-HMAC Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability
  was disclosed by Microsoft on Nov 8 2022 and per RFC8429 it is assumed
  that rc4-hmac is weak, Vulnerable Samba Active Directory DCs will issue
  rc4-hmac encrypted tickets despite the target server supporting better
  encryption (eg aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96).
  Note that there are several important behavior changes included in this
  release, which may cause compatibility problems interacting with system
  still expecting the former behavior.
  Please read the advisories of CVE-2022-37966, CVE-2022-37967 and
  CVE-2022-38023 carefully!
