Welcome all windows, and samba users. Please read badlock.org for why poor decisions have led to this day.
There is a known vulnerability with samba, please read the site listed. If time permits I will update this article with better info. However, if you are running Samba the shame on you… especially the old version. I have not “had to run samba”, for anything in several years now.
Please read my article on using AFPd in linux to use it as a time machine backup. Works great! Or my preference is NFS on a LAN.
Either way, I hope this helps a few people. Please share the article if it helped. There is a patch with CVE on the way according to their site.
