"Michal Zalewski has found a vulnerability in all versions of Samba
prior to 2.0.10 where if a client sends an invalid netbios name Samba
could be tricked into appending it's log to files writable by root.
This can be very dangerous if combined with a symlink created by a
local user. Note that the log files must be specified as %m.log in
order for this to work, and Mandrake Linux ships Samba by default
using log.%m, thus it is not vulnerable 'out of the box'."
