Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0591
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0591.

Samba provides file and printer sharing services to SMB/CIFS clients.

smbd daemon to consume a large amount of system memory by sending carefully

Users of Samba are advised to upgrade to these packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
