    Package        : samba
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-7494
    
    steelo discovered a remote code execution vulnerability in Samba, a
    SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix. A malicious client with
    access to a writable share, can take advantage of this flaw by uploading
    a shared library and then cause the server to load and execute it.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
