Description Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2016-04-12 11:13:12 CEST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #41033 +++

Without 'ntlm auth = no', there may still be clients not using NTLMv2. The elder original protocol version sends the password hashes across the wire, which may be observed and brute-forced easily. As far as I currently know Samba/AD DCs running 4.3.7 will default to this setting, but for member/file-servers it would be good to adjust the default too.
Comment 1 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2016-04-12 11:15:11 CEST
We should also consider setting "smb signing = required", which also appears to be default for Samba 4.3.7 AD DCs.
Comment 2 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2016-04-12 16:32:33 CEST
It's "server signing = mandatory" instead of "smb signing = required".
