smbd in Samba 3.0.29 through 3.2.4 might allow remote attackers to read arbitrary memory and cause a denial of service via crafted (1) trans, (2) trans2, and (3) nttrans requests, related to a "cut&paste error" that causes an improper bounds check to be performed.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
