samba vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in Samba.

Software Description:
- samba: SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix


Orange Tsai discovered that the Samba vfs_fruit module incorrectly handled
certain memory operations. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause
Samba to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code as root. (CVE-2021-44142)

Michael Hanselmann discovered that Samba incorrectly created directories.
In certain configurations, a remote attacker could possibly create a
directory on the server outside of the shared directory. (CVE-2021-43566)

Kees van Vloten discovered that Samba incorrectly handled certain aliased
SPN checks. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to impersonate
services. (CVE-2022-0336)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 21.10:
  samba                           2:4.13.17~dfsg-0ubuntu0.21.10.1

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  samba                           2:4.13.17~dfsg-0ubuntu0.21.04.1

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary

  CVE-2021-43566, CVE-2021-44142, CVE-2022-0336
