Slackware New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix security issues. More details about the issues may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1888 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1886
[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2009-177-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0,
12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix security issues.

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

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1888
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1886


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-3.2.13-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded.
  This upgrade fixes the following security issues:
  o CVE-2009-1888:
    In Samba 3.0.31 to 3.3.5 (inclusive), an uninitialized read of a
    data value can potentially affect access control when "dos filemode"
    is set to "yes".
  o CVE-2009-1886:
    In Samba 3.2.0 to 3.2.12 (inclusive), the smbclient commands dealing
    with file names treat user input as a format string to asprintf.
    With a maliciously crafted file name smbclient can be made
    to execute code triggered by the server.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1888
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1886
  (* 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.
