    Package        : samba
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0240
    
    Richard van Eeden of Microsoft Vulnerability Research discovered that
    Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix, contains a
    flaw in the netlogon server code which allows remote code execution with
    root privileges from an unauthenticated connection.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
