- The RPC code generator in Samba 3.x before 3.4.16, 3.5.x
before 3.5.14, and 3.6.x before 3.6.4 does not implement
validation of an array length in a manner consistent
with validation of array memory allocation, which allows
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted
RPC call. (CVE-2012-1182)
