FreeBSD : Samba -- Denial of service - memory corruption (bfdbc7ec-9c3f-11e0-9bec-6c626dd55a41)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55396
The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
The Samba team reports : Samba is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a memory corruption error related to missing range checks on file descriptors being used in the 'FD_SET' macro. By performing a select on a bad file descriptor set, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code on the system.
