    It was discovered that Samba, the SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server,
    contained a flaw in the remote procedure call (RPC) code which allowed
    remote code execution as the super user from an unauthenticated
    connection.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze7.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.6.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
