FreeBSD : samba -- potential remote DoS vulnerability (ba13dc13-340d-11d9-ac1b-000d614f7fad)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Karol Wiesek at iDEFENSE reports :

A remote attacker could cause an smbd process to consume abnormal
amounts of system resources due to an input validation error when
matching filenames containing wildcard characters.

Although samba.org classifies this as a DoS vulnerability, several
members of the security community believe it may be exploitable for
arbitrary code execution.
