Multiple format string vulnerabilities in client/client.c in smbclient
in Samba 3.2.0 through 3.2.12 might allow context-dependent attackers
to execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers in a filename.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and earlier provide Samba 3.0.x which is not vulnerable to this issue.
This issue is also caught by fortify source on Fedora and as a result is a non-issue.
