Richard van Eeden of Microsoft Vulnerability Research discovered that Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix, contains a flaw in the netlogon server code which allows remote code execution with root privileges from an unauthenticated connection.
For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze12.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u5.
