Disabling samba service on EA7500, patching

[ Edited ]

Is there a way to turn off samba services on my EA7500? I do not use the file sharing services on it, instead have a ubuntu home media box server.

 

Refer to my below screenshot, there's a huge bunch of long-discovered samba related vulnerabilities. Firmware is already updated with 2.0.5.186189.

 

Since i do not use samba having these vulnerabilities is unneccesarily enlarging insider attack surface from infected connected devices.

 

Thanks.
