passwords lockouts. This issue was only addressed in Ubuntu 22.10.
(CVE-2021-20251)

Evgeny Legerov discovered that Samba incorrectly handled buffers in
certain GSSAPI routines of Heimdal. A remote attacker could possibly use
this issue to cause Samba to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2022-3437)

Tom Tervoort discovered that Samba incorrectly used weak rc4-hmac Kerberos
keys. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to elevate
privileges. (CVE-2022-37966, CVE-2022-37967)

It was discovered that Samba supported weak RC4/HMAC-MD5 in NetLogon Secure
Channel. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to elevate
privileges. (CVE-2022-38023)

Greg Hudson discovered that Samba incorrectly handled PAC parsing. On
32-bit systems, a remote attacker could use this issue to escalate
privileges, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42898)

Joseph Sutton discovered that Samba could be forced to issue rc4-hmac
encrypted Kerberos tickets. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
to escalate privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and
Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. (CVE-2022-45141)
