New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6

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.
