As CVE-2015-0240 allows direct remote execution with root privileges(NO authentication required) and there is no known workaround for Samba versions prior to 4.0, i am reassigning this as A0

CVE-2015-0240 (
  The Netlogon server implementation in smbd in Samba 3.5.x and 3.6.x before
  3.6.25, 4.0.x before 4.0.25, 4.1.x before 4.1.17, and 4.2.x before 4.2.0rc5
  performs a free operation on an uninitialized stack pointer, which allows
  remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted Netlogon packets that
  use the ServerPasswordSet RPC API, as demonstrated by packets reaching the
  _netr_ServerPasswordSet function in rpc_server/netlogon/srv_netlog_nt.c.
