Slackware New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix security issues. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2014-175-04)

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-4.1.9-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes bugs and security issues, including a flaw in Samba's
  internal DNS server which can be exploited to cause a denial of service,
  a flaw in SRV_SNAPSHOT_ARRAY that permits attackers to leverage
  configurations that use shadow_copy* for vfs objects to reveal potentially
  private server information, a denial of service on the nmbd NetBIOS name
  services daemon, and a denial of service crash involving overwriting
  memory on an authenticated connection to the smbd file server.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0178
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0239
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0244
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-3493
