There is a work around if you can't upgrade. See here

Workaround
==========

Add the parameter:

nt pipe support = no

to the [global] section of your smb.conf and restart smbd. This
prevents clients from accessing any named pipe endpoints. Note this
can disable some expected functionality for Windows clients.

First, make sure none of your Samba shares are public. By enabling anyone on your network to write to it, you're also enabling them to plant malware.
