A use-after-free flaw was found in the way samba servers handled certain SMB1 requests. An unauthenticated attacker could send specially-crafted SMB1 requests to cause the server to crash or execute arbitrary code.

Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2017-11-10 11:53:16 UTC
As per upstream advisory:

All versions of Samba from 4.0.0 onwards are vulnerable to a use after free vulnerability, where a malicious SMB1 request can be used to control the contents of heap memory via a deallocated heap pointer. It is possible this may be used to compromise the SMB server.

Comment 1 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2017-11-10 11:53:33 UTC
Mitigation:

Prevent SMB1 access to the server by setting the parameter:

"server min protocol = SMB2"

to the [global] section of your smb.conf and restart smbd. This prevents and SMB1 access to the server. Note this could cause older clients to be unable to connect to the server.
