Synopsis :

updates.

Description :

The Samba project reports :

All current released versions of Samba are vulnerable to a denial of
service on an authenticated or guest connection. A malformed packet
can cause the smbd server to loop the CPU performing memory
allocations and preventing any further service.

A connection to a file share, or a local account is needed to exploit
this problem, either authenticated or unauthenticated if guest
connections are allowed.
