SynopsisArbitrary code may be run on the remote server.
DescriptionThe remote Samba server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow when it calls the function trans2open(). An attacker may exploit this flaw to gain a root shell on this host.
In addition, it is reported that this version of Samba is vulnerable to additional overflows, although Nessus has not checked for them.
