samba vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 17.10
- Ubuntu 17.04
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in Samba.

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


Yihan Lian and Zhibin Hu discovered that Samba incorrectly handled memory
when processing certain SMB1 requests. A remote attacker could possibly use
this issue to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-14746)

Volker Lendecke discovered that Samba incorrectly cleared memory when
returning data to a client. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2017-15275)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 17.10:
  samba                           2:4.6.7+dfsg-1ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 17.04:

  samba                           2:4.3.11+dfsg-0ubuntu0.14.04.13
