Debian DLA-951-1 : samba security update (SambaCry)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 100390
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
Descriptionsteelo discovered a remote code execution vulnerability in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix. A malicious client with access to a writable share, can take advantage of this flaw by uploading a shared library and then cause the server to load and execute it.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u13.
We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
