Not sure as I don't consider SAMBA to have a lot of security concerns.
I would also look at who has security concerns with SAMBA.  If it is a
Windows Admin, I would be skeptical.  If it is a Unix admin I would
listen more closely.  Keep in mind the older versions only support
NTLMv2 and if it is not configured properly, it could use NTLM.  I'm not
sure if the new versions are setup to use Kerberos or not.  I'm also not
sure if the SAMBA server updates its password when used with a Windows
domain or not.  SAMBA is probably more secure than many of the NAS
devices that are currently available, particularly the ones running a
proprietary OS.
