The version of samba as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a couple of
security problems:
* a Denial-of-Service attack against nmbd was possible
* it was possible to exploit smbd if you had a message command defined
  which used the %f or %M formatter.
* smbmnt's check to see if a user is allowed to create a mount was flawed
  which allowed users to mount at arbitraty mountpoints in the filesystem

These problems have been fixed in version 2.0.5a-1. We recommend you upgrade
your samba packages immediately.

Please note that this is a major upgrade so please be careful when you upgrade
since some changes to the configuration file might be necessary. The 
configuration
file also moved to a new location (/etc/samba).

The smbfsx package is also obsolete with this update and has been replaced by
smbfs, which can handle both 2.0 and 2.2 kernels now.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
