Hi Community,

A critical vulnerability (CVE-2021-44142 score 9.9) in Samba and all versions of Samba prior to 4.13.17 are vulnerable.

As we know, SMB module is included in openvas-smb package for OpenVAS Scanner.

Would you please help to check whether openvas-smb package is fine or provide any mitigation plan?

Please refer to Samba - Security Announcement Archive for more detail.

Hi @owem777,

Thank you for checking, I asked and was informed that the SMB module is unaffected. It looks like you’re using a retired release of GVM (we’re currently in the 21 series, please see New releases for GVM 20.08 and GVM 21.04) so if you run into any issues we’d recommend upgrading. Thanks!
