Red Hat, Debian release updated Samba packages

Several vulnerabilities discovered in Samba will encourage you
to apply these fixes to your distribution.

According to the Debian announce list:

  • a Denial-of-Service attack against nmbd was possible
  • it was possible to exploit smbd if you had a message command
    defined which used the %f or %M formatter.
  • smbmnt’s check to see if a user is allowed to create a mount
    was flawed which allowed users to mount at arbitraty mountpoints in
    the filesystem
