Hi, firstly I understand samba is vulnerable and even though a Firewall and VPN is being used and the samba port being closed some people think it may be worth completely disabling and/or removing samba altogether? Also I remember someone telling me how to remove samba before but can't remember what they said to do lol.

 

And the other issue is this:

 

 

 

 http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/op/stable/debian/dists/lsb3.2/Release.gpg: Signature by key E5220FB7014D0FBDA50DFC2BE5E86C008AA65D56 uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)

 

 

 

How would I go about solving this? Cheers.

If your system is kept updated I don't think there is any worry about SAMBACRY now, at least for the mainstream distro's

This is a good read:

Don't know about your second question.  I've seen that before but forget what it means, except for telling you that SHA1 is considered a weak algorithm: "uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)"  Perhaps if you tell us what printer you need drivers for we can help, and even download that one to see what we get?

Okay, didn't realize that Samba is not even installed on my system lol. Just tried removing it now and it's not even installed. I just assumes it comes with all Linux Distros. n
