The SAMBA team announced a critical vulnerability affecting not just SAMBA, but the Microsoft Windows implementation of the SMB protocol as well. SMB is a widely used protocol and many networks rely on SMB for file sharing. In this webcast, we will show how the 'BadLock ' vulnerability affects you, how to detect exploitation and how to mitigate some of the risks associated with the vulnerability. Given the advance notice, exploit writers are already looking for potential vulnerabilities in SAMBA and are actively working to create exploits. While the pre-announcement gave defenders ample time to get ready, in the end you will have to patch and patch fast to be able to mitigate this vulnerability.
