Upgraded

  • patches/packages/samba-4.1.6-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz
    This update fixes two security issues:
    CVE-2013-4496:
    Samba versions 3.4.0 and above allow the administrator to implement
    locking out Samba accounts after a number of bad password attempts.
    However, all released versions of Samba did not implement this check for
    password changes, such as are available over multiple SAMR and RAP
    interfaces, allowing password guessing attacks.
    CVE-2013-6442:
    Samba versions 4.0.0 and above have a flaw in the smbcacls command. If
    smbcacls is used with the “-C|–chown name” or “-G|–chgrp name”
    command options it will remove the existing ACL on the object being
    modified, leaving the file or directory unprotected.
