David,

This is not a bug, it's a feature. According to upstream you can disable
NX Bit using the kernel flag "noexec=off and noexec32=off", if you still
have problems, disable it in your CPU too using your BIOS.  Please also
refrain from making false statements about other operating systems on
Launchpad. While I am no Windows fanboy, it is not true that "Microsoft
needs to BUY some CODE" in this case, since Microsoft has implemented
DEP (NX Bit) since Windows XP SP2 and NX Bit was mostly designed to
prevent buffer overflows, not all Malware, if it was designed to prevent
all types of Malware you certainly wouldn't ever see rootkits and
backdoors on corporate Linux and Windows environments.

** Changed in: samba (Ubuntu)
       Status: New => Opinion
