[slackware-security]  samba (SSA:2014-213-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.1 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/samba-4.1.11-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a remote code execution attack on unauthenticated nmbd
  NetBIOS name services.  A malicious browser can send packets that may
  overwrite the heap of the target nmbd NetBIOS name services daemon.
  It may be possible to use this to generate a remote code execution
  vulnerability as the superuser (root).
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-3560
  (* Security fix *)
