Description

Samba development team reports:

All versions of Samba from 3.5.0 to 4.2.0rc4 are vulnerable to an unexpected code execution vulnerability in the smbd file server daemon. A malicious client could send packets that may set up the stack in such a way that the freeing of memory in a subsequent anonymous netlogon packet could allow execution of arbitrary code. This code would execute with root privileges.
