Challenging the authenticity of a Hadith in Bukhari!

Question

Is this Hadith Sahih considering its chains?

This is what I read about it:

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, ‘From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk (clothes), the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful.’

Although this hadith is in Sahih Al-Bukhari, its chain of transmission is not connected to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing! s be upon him) and this invalidates its authenticity.

Ibn Hazam rejects it for that very reason.
