The remote host is missing an update to samba announced via advisory DSA 701-1.

Insight

Insight

Greg MacManus discovered an integer overflow in the smb daemon from Samba, a LanManager like file and printer server for GNU/Linux and Unix-like systems. Requesting a very large number of access control descriptors from the server could exploit the integer overflow, which may result in a buffer overflow which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with root privileges. Upstream developers have discovered more possible integer overflows that are fixed with this update as well. For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.3a-14.2. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.10-1. We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
