sawky puck writes "Researchers at Secunia have flagged a 'highly critical' vulnerability in Samba, the widely deployed open-source software for networked file sharing and printing. Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code by tricking a user into connecting to a malicious server (e.g. by clicking an 'smb://' link) or by sending specially crafted packets to an 'nmbd' server configured as a local or domain master browser. This issue affects both Samba client and server installations."
