Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Richard van Eeden of Microsoft Vulnerability Research discovered that Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix, contains a flaw in the netlogon server code which allows remote code execution with root privileges from an unauthenticated connection.

Solution

Upgrade the samba packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u5.
