The remote file server is vulnerable to a security bypass attack.
The remote Samba server is potentially affected by a security bypass
vulnerability because of a flaw that causes all smbd processes, when
libcap support is enabled, to inherit 'CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE' capabilities,
which in turn causes all file system access to be allowed even when
permissions should have been denied.
A remote, authenticated attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to
gain access to sensitive information on Samba shares that are
accessible to their user id.
