the remote host is affected by a local privilege escalation
vulnerability. Specifically, the Winbind nss_info extension, when the
'winbind nss info' option is set to 'rfc2307' or 'sfu', grants local
users the privileges of gid 0 if the 'RFC2307' or 'Services for UNIX'
primary group attribute is not defined.
