Synopsis :

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

Description :

Samba development team reports :

Samba versions 3.6.3 and all versions previous to this are affected by
a vulnerability that allows remote code execution as the 'root' user
from an anonymous connection.

As this does not require an authenticated connection it is the most
serious vulnerability possible in a program, and users and vendors are
encouraged to patch their Samba installations immediately.
