The remote Samba server is affected by a remote code execution
The version of Samba running on the remote host is 3.5.x prior to
4.4.x, or it is 4.4.x prior to 4.4.14, 4.5.x prior to 4.5.10, or 4.6.x
prior to 4.6.4. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified remote
code execution vulnerability. An authenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted shared library uploaded to a
writable share, to cause the server to load and execute arbitrary code
with root privileges.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
See also :
Upgrade to Samba version 4.4.14 / 4.5.10 / 4.6.4 or later.
Alternatively, add the parameter 'nt pipe support = no' to the
[global] section of the smb.conf and restart smbd. This prevents
clients from accessing any named pipe endpoints. Note that this
workaround can disable some expected functionality for Windows
