Samba is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a memory
corruption error related to missing range checks on file descriptors
being used in the 'FD_SET' macro. By performing a select on a bad file
descriptor set, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
cause the application to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code on
the system.
