Samba is an open-source software tool used for file and print services. It allows Unix-based systems to communicate with Windows-based systems and share resources. Its primary use is in network environments where multiple operating systems coexist, allowing easy communication and sharing of resources across different platforms. Samba is a critical tool for businesses that require cross-platform communication in their network infrastructure.

CVE-2017-7494, is a remote code execution vulnerability in Samba that was detected in versions prior to 4.6.4, 4.5.10, and 4.4.14. The vulnerability allows a malicious client to upload a shared library to a writable share, and then cause the server to load and execute it. This vulnerability could potentially give complete control of the system to the attacker.
