The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Volker Lendecke discovered that the Samba NetBIOS name service daemon
incorrectly handled certain memory operations. A remote attacker could
use this issue to execute arbitrary code as the root user.

description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected samba package.
