SERVER-SAMBA -- Snort has detected traffic exploiting vulnerabilities in Samba servers.

Alert Message

SERVER-SAMBA Samba smbd _netr_ServerPasswordSet deprecated vulnerable function access attempt

Rule Explanation

The Netlogon server implementation in smbd in Samba 3.5.x and 3.6.x before 3.6.25, 4.0.x before 4.0.25, 4.1.x before 4.1.17, and 4.2.x before 4.2.0rc5 performs a free operation on an uninitialized stack pointer, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted Netlogon packets that use the ServerPasswordSet RPC API, as demonstrated by packets reaching the _netr_ServerPasswordSet function in rpc_server/netlogon/srv_netlog_nt.c.
