This release fixes some possible security issues, all of which have
“unknown impact and attack vectors”.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
This update fixes the following security issues.
A misconfigured /etc/passwd with no defined home directory could allow
security restrictions to be bypassed.
mount.cifs could allow a local user to read the first line of an arbitrary
file if installed setuid. (On Slackware, it was not installed setuid)
Specially crafted SMB requests could cause a denial of service.
