New samba packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and -current
to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-3.6.17-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes missing integer wrap protection in an EA list reading
  that can allow authenticated or guest connections to cause the server to
  loop, resulting in a denial of service.
  For more information, see:
