Slackware New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix security issues. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2013-322-03)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to
fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-4.1.1-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes two security issues:
  * Samba versions 3.2.0 and above do not check the underlying file or
    directory ACL when opening an alternate data stream.
  * In setups which provide ldap(s) and/or https services, the private key
    for SSL/TLS encryption might be world readable.  This typically happens
    in active directory domain controller setups.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-4475
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-4476
  (* Security fix *)
  Added tdb.h, tdb.pc, and a libtdb.so symlink.  Thanks to Matteo Bernardini.
