Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

An uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in the Samba daemon
(smbd). A malicious Samba client could send specially crafted netlogon
packets that, when processed by smbd, could potentially lead to
arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running smbd
(by default, the root user). (CVE-2015-0240)

After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted
automatically.
