The remote host is missing the GLSA-200409-14 security update.
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in
GLSA-200409-14 (Samba: Remote printing vulnerability)
Due to a bug in the printer_notify_info() function, authorized users could
potentially crash the Samba server by sending improperly handled print
change notification requests in an invalid order. Windows XP SP2 clients
can trigger this behavior by sending a FindNextPrintChangeNotify() request
before previously sending a FindFirstPrintChangeNotify() request.
A remote authorized user could potentially crash a Samba server after
issuing these out of sequence requests.
There is no known workaround at this time.
