According to its banner, the version of Samba 3.6.x running on the remote host is earlier than 3.6.3. Errors exist in the files β€˜source3/lib/substitute.c’ and β€˜sources3/smbd/server.c’ that leak small amounts of memory when processing every connection attempt.

An attacker can continually make connections to the server and cause a denial of service attack against the affected smbd service.

Note that Nessus has not actually tried to exploit this issue or otherwise determine if the patch has been applied.
