Scientific Linux Security Update : samba on SL3.x, SL4.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Samba clients
handle over-sized packets. If a client connected to a malicious Samba
server, it was possible to execute arbitrary code as the Samba client
user. It was also possible for a remote user to send a specially
crafted print request to a Samba server that could result in the
server executing the vulnerable client code, resulting in arbitrary
code execution with the permissions of the Samba server.
