Date Reported:
21 Nov 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-15275.
More information:

Volker Lendecke of SerNet and the Samba team discovered that Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix, is prone to a heap memory information leak, where server allocated heap memory may be returned to the client without being cleared.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u15.

We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
