Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200702-01 (Samba: Multiple vulnerabilities)

A format string vulnerability exists in the VFS module when handling     AFS file systems and an infinite loop has been discovered when handling     file rename operations.

Impact :

A user with permission to write to a shared AFS file system may be able     to compromise the smbd process and execute arbitrary code with the     permissions of the daemon. The infinite loop could be abused to consume     excessive resources on the smbd host, denying service to legitimate     users.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
