Slackware New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, and -current to fix a security issue: "Specifically crafted SMB responses can result in a heap overflow in the Samba client code. Because the server process, smbd, can itself act as a client during operations such as printer notification and domain authentication, this issue affects both Samba client and server installations."
[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2008-149-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0,
12.1, and -current to fix a security issue:  

  "Specifically crafted SMB responses can result in a heap overflow in the
   Samba client code.  Because the server process, smbd, can itself act as
   a client during operations such as printer notification and domain
   authentication,  this issue affects both Samba client and server
   installations."

This flaw affects Samba versions from 3.0.0 through 3.0.29.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1105


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-3.0.30-i486-1_slack12.1.tgz:
  Upgraded to samba-3.0.30.
  This is a security release in order to address CVE-2008-1105 ("Boundary
  failure when parsing SMB responses can result in a buffer overrun").
  For more information on the security issue, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1105
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
