slackware-security: samba (SSA:2022-320-04)

[slackware-security] samba (SSA:2022-320-04)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/samba-4.15.12-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
Fixed a security issue where Samba's Kerberos libraries and AD DC failed
to guard against integer overflows when parsing a PAC on a 32-bit system,
which allowed an attacker with a forged PAC to corrupt the heap.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
