  • Samba is just doing the secure and rational factor and guaranteeing SMB1 protocol just isn’t obtainable for assaults towards a better revision and in any other case safe SMB community if in any respect attainable. The encryption in SMB1 has been damaged for years, and even SMB2 I imagine has problems with its personal. I’m not positive in regards to the older protocols and if they’ve been eliminated, deprecated, or ignored solely, however that is nothing to complain about as long as regression testing and help for the characteristic is stored, even when solely utilized by

    • Within the overwhelming majority of installs I’ve seen, SMB just isn’t encrypted, and isn’t presupposed to be — it is there for file sharing between workers/relations/a number of private machines in an area community. No Home windows-using firms I’ve seen belief it sufficient for distant entry to delicate information.

      Thus, SMB1 just isn’t a problem, so long as servers nor purchasers cannot be DOSed.

      • Thus, SMB1 just isn’t a problem, so long as servers nor purchasers cannot be DOSed.

        I even have simply relations in my home so none of my laptop accounts are password protected. It isn’t like somebody from the web would strive one thing nefarious.… []

        The primary paragraph mainly says all of it:

        A number of the most devastating ransomware and Trojan malware variants depend upon vulnerabilities within the Home windows Server Message Block (SMB) to propagate by a corporation’s community. Home windows SMB is a protocol utilized by PCs for file and printer sharing, as effectively

    • > Neither protocol affords any significant safety so far as I am conscious.

      This is not true. SMB3.11 implements transport degree encryption with man-in-the-middle negotiation safety.

      It is so safe that Microsoft permits direct entry by way of SMB3.11 into the Azure cloud.

      • That is good to know. I maintain my porn^H^H^H^Hhigh high quality jpeg artwork on a samba share. I would love to have the ability to ship that out over the web so I might entry it distant sties. Can be lots higher than once I undergo customs the place they examine my pill, and me making an attempt to clarify what the lady and the donkey, err. I imply what the person and the hat means.

  • Samba provides STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME for something from permission errors, to configuration errors, to your face is ugly. Any probability they’re going to repair this?

    • I believe anticipating the Samba group to do one thing about your face is a little bit a lot.

      • Truly we’re fairly pleasant to new contributors, though the bar is increased now then it was once years in the past to get code accepted. If you wish to assist please.submit patches to our gitlab repo. In the event that they move the CI checks.sick be blissful to guage and provides suggestions on them.


        Jeremy Allison,

        Samba Group.

        • I used to be actually going to provide the “Patches gratefully accepted” kind factor on the finish of my above remark, in context to similar. FWIW. Have not been personally concerned in any open supply tasks for some time for a number of causes, alas.

      • Provided that they’re dropping SMB1 by default as an alternative of fixing the rationale why it is being dropped, in all probability not.

        They’re fixing SMB1. The repair was referred to as SMB2. You do not appear to know that SMB1 is inherently insecure and unfixable in any means that might retain compatibility with SMB1. The consumer pleasant resolution is to rev up the protocol quantity, migrate to the brand new protocol and after a thought of time drop help for the earlier one.

        They’re doing the theoretically and virtually least obtrusive factor together with the remainder of the business, save for MS who did not even trouble publishing the truth that a Home windows replace

    • Samba provides STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME

      Sure, SMB provides provides networks a foul identify.

    • It is not likely XP – it is residence theatre apps, Android file managers – anyone who needed to roll their very own SMB stack, mainly.

      I misplaced VLC on a Hearth Follow FreeNAS when its default modified to v2. I turned v1 again on as a result of I would not ever use SMB for something delicate.

      • You need not fork the code – at the least not but. The SMB1 server continues to be inbuilt, it is simply now not obtainable by default.

        In time I actually need to begin eradicating that code nonetheless, because it actually complicates the underlying NTFS emulation layer contained in the smbd server code.

        We could be a lot cleaner and nicer as a server if we will ditch the horrid outdated SMB1 emulation layer.

    • I suppose one might preserve a fork that retains SMB1

      Or simply add “min protocol = SMB1” to the configuration. We should not be insecure by default simply because somebody needs to help a effectively and really depreciated community protocol.

    • An excessive amount of random crap makes use of it. Apparently numerous “good” gadgets with a bit too low cost SMB implementations.

  • Say goodbye to Home windows XP and Server 2003.

    P.S. SMB1 help continues to be there however you need to allow it manually.

    • Say goodbye to Home windows XP and Server 2003.

      Wait, are they nonetheless right here?

      I believed they left..

      Why will not they go away???

    • > Say goodbye to Home windows XP and Server 2003

      â”If anybody continues to be working these methods in 2019 outdoors of a VM (particularly in âoeproductionâ) – they beautiful a lot deserve no matter they could catch. Working a 16 yr outdated Home windows-based OS on your server is mainly lazy+insane, and a pressured improve would profit the ecosystem normally.

Diplomacy is the artwork of claiming “good doggy” till you could find a rock.
