Synopsis :

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

Description :

Samba project reports :

In Samba's SAMR server we neglect to ensure that attempted password
changes will update the bad password count, nor set the lockout flags.
This would allow a user unlimited attempts against the password by
simply calling ChangePasswordUser2 repeatedly.

This is available without any other authentication.

smbcacls can remove a file or directory ACL by mistake.
