The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 813
fully remove product and version information
Last modified: 2003-11-25 09:04:34 UTC
I would like to see an option in the configuration files to fully remove product
and version information from the server's protocol.
It is part of my security concept to NOT show anything like that to outside users.
hiding the version provides no additional security.
The current behavior was decided upon by consent
on the samba-technical mailing list.
However if you want to do this, see
smbd/sesssetup.c:add_signature() and make sure to
set the 'server string' appropriately in smb.conf.
