New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0 and -current.
These fix two denial of service vulnerabilities reported by
iDEFENSE.  Slackware -current has been upgraded to samba-3.0.7,
while the samba-3.0.5 included with Slackware 10.0 has been

upgrade to the new package.  Versions of Samba before 3.0.x are
not affected by these flaws.
