Additional SMBLoris vulnerability/security-breach danger !

Recommended Posts

SMB operates, not only on incoming-and-outgoing Ports 139 & 445, but also on incoming-and-outgoing Ports 137 & 138 !

 

SMB-capability, is prevalent in, at least Macs, as well as Window-systems .

 

If it is present in Macs, it might also be present in Linux-systems .

 

The komando.com article,

https://www.komando.com/happening-now/412514/turn-this-windows-service-off-right-now-it-leaves-you-vulnerable-to-attacks?utm_medium=nl&utm_source=notd&utm_content=2017-08-07-article-c

, warning against the "SMBLoris" vulnerability ONLY mentioned incoming-Ports 139 & 445, but NOT incoming-Ports 137 & 138, and ONLY mentioned it on Windows-systems ! -- Shouldn't the warning be expanded ?

SMB (or Samba on Macs and Linux) is not attacked directly by SMBLoris, only the Windows implementation of the protocol, so Macs and Linux should not have to worry, and that is why only Windows is mentioned in the article.
