The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update of Samba fixes a heap-based buffer overflow that could be exploited by remote, unauthenticated attackers to crash the smbd daemon or potentially execute arbitrary code via specially crafted SMB AndX request packets. (CVE-2012-0870)

Also fixed two non security bugs :

- Fix to handle domain join using NetBIOS name;.

- Fixed the DFS referral response for msdfs root;.
