Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the samba package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:034 (samba).

A logic error in the deferred open code for smbd may permit an
authenticated user to exhaust resources such as memory and CPU on the
server by opening multiple CIFS sessions, each of which will normally
spawn a new smbd process, and sending each connection into an infinite
loop. (CVE-2007-0452)
The name of a file on the server's share is used as the format string
when setting an NT security descriptor through the afsacl.so VFS
test. (CVE-2007-0454)
Updated packages have been patched to address these issues.
