Windows update breaks client authentication against Samba AD DCs

The recently released Windows Update KB5028185/KB5028166 (July 11, 2023) breaks the client authentication against Samba AD DCs. Other implications are possible but require further investigation. The Samba Team and SerNet are already working on a solution. We will provide SAMBA+ updates as soon we have a fix.

Update: A fix for Samba 4.18.4 is already implemented and an update available.
