[slackware-security]  samba DoS (SSA:2004-257-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0 and -current.
These fix two denial of service vulnerabilities reported by
iDEFENSE.  Slackware -current has been upgraded to samba-3.0.7,
while the samba-3.0.5 included with Slackware 10.0 has been
patched to fix these issues.  Sites running Samba 3.x should
upgrade to the new package.  Versions of Samba before 3.0.x are
not affected by these flaws.

More details about these issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:
