The specific flaw exists within the way Samba handles SetInfoPolicy requests. When parsing the data send in the request Samba uses the field 'settings' to create a heap allocation but then uses another field, 'count', to write data to the allocation. Because there is no check to see if 'count' is smaller than 'settings' this could result in a heap buffer overflow that could lead to remote code execution.
Samba has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
