    samba vulnerabilities
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 13.10
    - Ubuntu 13.04
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    Several security issues were fixed in Samba.
    Software Description:
    - samba: SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix
    It was discovered that Winbind incorrectly handled invalid group names with
    the require_membership_of parameter. If an administrator used an invalid
    group name by mistake, access was granted instead of having the login fail.
    Stefan Metzmacher and Michael Adam discovered that Samba incorrectly
    handled DCE-RPC fragment length fields. A remote attacker could use this
    issue to cause Samba to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
    possibly execute arbitrary code as the root user. (CVE-2013-4408)
    Hemanth Thummala discovered that Samba incorrectly handled file
    permissions when vfs_streams_depot or vfs_streams_xattr were enabled. A
    remote attacker could use this issue to bypass intended restrictions.
    Update instructions:
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    Ubuntu 13.10:
      libpam-winbind                  2:3.6.18-1ubuntu3.1
      samba                           2:3.6.18-1ubuntu3.1
    Ubuntu 13.04:
      libpam-winbind                  2:3.6.9-1ubuntu1.2
      samba                           2:3.6.9-1ubuntu1.2
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      libpam-winbind                  2:3.6.6-3ubuntu5.3
      samba                           2:3.6.6-3ubuntu5.3
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libpam-winbind                  2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2.9
      samba                           2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2.9
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      samba                           2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.13
      winbind                         2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.13
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
