New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

An input sanitization flaw was found in the way Samba parsed client data. A malicious client could send a specially crafted SMB packet to the Samba server, resulting in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the Samba server (smbd). (CVE-2010-2063)

After installing this update, the smb service will be restarted automatically.
