DescriptionSamba development team reports :
Samba versions 3.6.3 and all versions previous to this are affected by a vulnerability that allows remote code execution as the 'root' user from an anonymous connection.
As this does not require an authenticated connection it is the most serious vulnerability possible in a program, and users and vendors are encouraged to patch their Samba installations immediately.
