SERVER-SAMBA -- Snort has detected traffic exploiting vulnerabilities in Samba servers.

Alert Message

SERVER-SAMBA Samba malicious user defined array size and buffer attempt

Rule Explanation

The RPC code generator in Samba 3.x before 3.4.16, 3.5.x before 3.5.14, and 3.6.x before 3.6.4 does not implement validation of an array length in a manner consistent with validation of array memory allocation, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted RPC call.
