Hello Samba,

I'm running 4.2.14 (yes, will update;-) ) as a DC. In our network we
run security scans with a greenbone.net system which is basically a
OpenVAS.org appliance.
OpenVAS reports the following security problem against the samba wins

Microsoft Windows WINS Remote Code Execution Vulnerability (2524426)


The detection is done by checking the remote banner with this plugin:

My first idea is that the samba banner needs to be updated to the
updated one but I'm not sure you agree.

Should I report this in the samba bugzilla?

Thank you.
