We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

  It was discovered that Samba incorrectly handled the bad password count
  logic. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass bad
  passwords lockouts. This issue was only addressed in Ubuntu 22.10.
  (CVE-2021-20251)
   Evgeny Legerov discovered that Samba incorrectly handled buffers in
  certain GSSAPI routines of Heimdal. A remote attacker could possibly use
  this issue to cause Samba to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
  (CVE-2022-3437)
   Tom Tervoort discovered that Samba incorrectly used weak rc4-hmac Kerberos
  keys. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to elevate
  privileges. (CVE-2022-37966, CVE-2022-37967)
   It was discovered that Samba supported weak RC4/HMAC-MD5 in NetLogon Secure
  Channel. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to elevate
  privileges. (CVE-2022-38023)
   Greg Hudson discovered that Samba incorrectly handled PAC parsing. On
  32-bit systems, a remote attacker could use this issue to escalate
  privileges, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42898)
   Joseph Sutton discovered that Samba could be forced to issue rc4-hmac
  encrypted Kerberos tickets. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
  to escalate privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and
  Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. (CVE-2022-45141)
   WARNING: The fixes included in these updates introduce several important
