Details

Volker Lendecke discovered that Samba incorrectly handled certain file
descriptors. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to
the server and cause Samba to crash or hang, resulting in a denial of
service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 6.06
Ubuntu 10.10
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
