New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.1, and -current to

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-4.1.4-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a heap-based buffer overflow that may allow AD domain
  controllers to execute arbitrary code via an invalid fragment length in
  a DCE-RPC packet.
  For more information, see:
