Here are the details from the Slackware 13.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-3.2.15-i486-1_slack13.0.txz:
  This update fixes the following security issues.
  A misconfigured /etc/passwd with no defined home directory could allow
  security restrictions to be bypassed.
  mount.cifs could allow a local user to read the first line of an arbitrary
  file if installed setuid.  (On Slackware, it was not installed setuid)
  Specially crafted SMB requests could cause a denial of service.
  For more information, see:

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.
