I configured a network share using the guidance found here:
But after everything was successfully configured and tested, I was dismayed to learn that an older release branch had been installed, leaving me potentially vulnerable to attack:
If you update your Samba version to 4.6.4 (4.5.10 or 4.4.14 if you are on older release branches), the exploit can’t be used...
I checked, and I'm running Samba v4.2.14:
root@RASPBERRY:/home/pi# aptitude show samba Package: samba State: installed Automatically installed: no Version: 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u6 Priority: optional Section: net Maintainer: Debian Samba Maintainers <email@example.com> Architecture: armhf Uncompressed Size: 11.2 M
How can I update to the latest release branch?
I'm surprised at how difficult it is to find this. I would have thought it'd be a fairly common task.
