New Samba packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and -current to fix a security related (but in my own and also 
the Samba's team member who made their WHATSNEW.txt entry, "minor")
denial of service issue.

Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
