Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Steve Langasek found an exploitable bug in the password handling

UCS2 unicode a buffer length was not checked and a buffer could
be overflowed. There is no known exploit for this, but an upgrade
is strongly recommended.
This problem has been fixed in version 2.2.3a-12 of the Debian
samba packages and upstream version 2.2.7.
