Description

New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, and -current to fix a security issue. A boundary failure in GETDC mailslot processing can result in a buffer overrun leading to possible code execution.

More details about the issue will become available in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-6015

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/samba-3.0.28-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz: Upgraded to samba-3.0.28. Samba 3.0.28 is a security release in order to address a boundary failure in GETDC mailslot processing that can result in a buffer overrun leading to possible code execution. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-6015 http://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-3.0.28.html http://secunia.com/secunia_research/2007-99/advisory/ ( Security fix )

Where to find the new packages:

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.
