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: 8.9
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionRichard 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.
For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze12.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u5.
We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
