Slackware New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and 13.0 to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2010-169-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0,
12.1, 12.2, and 13.0 to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-3.2.15-i486-2_slack13.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched a buffer overflow in smbd that allows remote attackers to cause
  a denial of service (memory corruption and daemon crash) or possibly
  execute arbitrary code via a crafted field in a packet.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-2063
  (* 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.
