This bug was fixed in the package samba - 2:3.6.25-0ubuntu0.12.04.4

samba (2:3.6.25-0ubuntu0.12.04.4) precise-security; urgency=medium

  * SECURITY REGRESSION: compatibility with NetAPP SAN (LP: #1576109)
    - debian/patches/fix_netapp.patch: don't require NTLMSSP_SIGN for smb
      connections in source3/libsmb/ntlmssp.c.
  * SECURITY REGRESSION: compatibility with 3.6 servers (LP: #1574403)
    - debian/patches/relax_client_ipc_signing.patch: relax the
      "client ipc signing" parameter to "auto" so a 3.6 client can still
      connect to a 3.6 server. Administrators in environments that
      exclusively connect to more recent servers might want to manually
      configure this back to "mandatory".
