Samba is the most-widely used software that allows access Windows networks from non-Windows clients. If you're running a Samba server version 2.0 or higher, you urgently need to install the latest version 2.2.8, or block access to TCP ports 139 and 445.

Version 2.2.8 source can be found here, and binaries here.
