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:
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! :-)
