Last week there was a lot of hype surrounding the Badlock vulnerability in Samba. Though some of the concern over the vulnerability was unwarrented, open source projects have been quick to update their Samba packages and push out updates. The FreeNAS project, when faced with backporting a complex fix, decided to take this opportunity to upgrade older installations of the Samba file sharing software. Jordan Hubbard commented, "Because of the complexity of the fixes to Samba and the difficulty in back-porting them to Samba 4.1, we also decided to upgrade all TrueNAS/FreeNAS 9.3 users to Samba 4.3.6 - a newer and more capable version of Samba that is already in use by FreeNAS 9.10 - at the same time. FreeNAS 9.10 users will only see a fix for Badlock, not a Samba upgrade as well."
