Description

According to its banner, the version of the Samba server installed on the remote host is affected by a local privilege escalation vulnerability. Specifically, the Winbind nss_info extension, when the 'winbind nss info' option is set to 'rfc2307' or 'sfu', grants local users the privileges of gid 0 if the 'RFC2307' or 'Services for UNIX' primary group attribute is not defined.
