Topic:


The following Denial of Service Flaw was reported in Samba 3.0 versions prior to and including v3.0.6:

(i) A DoS bug in smbd may allow an unauthenticated user to cause smbd to spawn new processes each one entering an infinite

(ii) A DoS bug in nmbd may allow an attacker to remotely crash the nmbd daemon.
