Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : samba
Version     : 3.0.24
Release     : 5.fc6
Summary     : The Samba SMB server.
Description :

Samba is the suite of programs by which a lot of PC-related machines
share files, printers, and other information (such as lists of
available files and printers). The Windows NT, OS/2, and Linux
operating systems support this natively, and add-on packages can
enable the same thing for DOS, Windows, VMS, UNIX of all kinds, MVS,
and more. This package provides an SMB server that can be used to
provide network services to SMB (sometimes called "Lan Manager")
clients. Samba uses NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT
need the NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw NetBIOS frame) protocol.

Update Information:

This release of Samba fixes some Serious security bugs:
- CVE-2007-2444
- CVE-2007-2446
