"Released last week, version 3.4.8 of the free Samba file and
print server fixes various holes including two denial of service
(DoS) vulnerabilities which allow attackers to remotely crash the
Smbd service. One of the problems is caused by a null pointer
dereference when processing a certain series of SMB headers that
include a specific combination of flags."
