    samba regressions
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    USN-2950-1 introduced regressions in Samba.
    
    Software Description:
    - samba: SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix
    
    Details:
    
    USN-2950-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Samba. The backported fixes introduced
    in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS caused interoperability issues. This update fixes
    compatibility with certain NAS devices, and allows connecting to Samba 3.6
    servers by relaxing the "client ipc signing" parameter to "auto".
    
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     Jouni Knuutinen discovered that Samba contained multiple flaws in the
     DCE/RPC implementation. A remote attacker could use this issue to perform
     a denial of service, downgrade secure connections by performing a man in
     the middle attack, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-5370)
      Stefan Metzmacher discovered that Samba contained multiple flaws in the
     NTLMSSP authentication implementation. A remote attacker could use this
     issue to downgrade connections to plain text by performing a man in the
     middle attack. (CVE-2016-2110)
      Alberto Solino discovered that a Samba domain controller would establish a
     secure connection to a server with a spoofed computer name. A remote
     attacker could use this issue to obtain sensitive information.
     (CVE-2016-2111)
      Stefan Metzmacher discovered that the Samba LDAP implementation did not
     enforce integrity protection. A remote attacker could use this issue to
     hijack LDAP connections by performing a man in the middle attack.
     (CVE-2016-2112)
      Stefan Metzmacher discovered that Samba did not validate TLS certificates.
     A remote attacker could use this issue to spoof a Samba server.
     (CVE-2016-2113)
      Stefan Metzmacher discovered that Samba did not enforce SMB signing even if
     configured to. A remote attacker could use this issue to perform a man in
     the middle attack. (CVE-2016-2114)
      Stefan Metzmacher discovered that Samba did not enable integrity protection
     for IPC traffic. A remote attacker could use this issue to perform a man in
     the middle attack. (CVE-2016-2115)
      Stefan Metzmacher discovered that Samba incorrectly handled the MS-SAMR and
     MS-LSAD protocols. A remote attacker could use this flaw with a man in the
     middle attack to impersonate users and obtain sensitive information from
     the Security Account Manager database. This flaw is known as Badlock.
     (CVE-2016-2118)
      Samba has been updated to 4.3.8 in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 15.10.
     Ubuntu 12.04 LTS has been updated to 3.6.25 with backported security fixes.
      In addition to security fixes, the updated packages contain bug fixes,
     new features, and possibly incompatible changes. Configuration changes may
     be required in certain environments.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      samba                           2:3.6.25-0ubuntu0.12.04.4
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
