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.

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.
