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-4.18.9-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This is a security release in order to address the following defect:
An information leak vulnerability was discovered in Samba's LDAP server.
Due to missing access control checks, an authenticated but unprivileged
attacker could discover the names and preserved attributes of deleted objects
in the LDAP store. Upgrading to this package will not prevent this
information leak - if you are using Samba as an Active Directory Domain
Controller, you will need to follow the instructions in the samba.org link
given below.
