[slackware-security] samba (SSA:2017-332-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current
to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/samba-4.4.16-i586-2_slack14.2.txz: Rebuilt.
This is a security update in order to patch the following defects:
CVE-2017-14746 (Use-after-free vulnerability.)
All versions of Samba from 4.0.0 onwards are vulnerable to a use after
free vulnerability, where a malicious SMB1 request can be used to
control the contents of heap memory via a deallocated heap pointer. It
is possible this may be used to compromise the SMB server.
CVE-2017-15275 (Server heap memory information leak.)
All versions of Samba from 3.6.0 onwards are vulnerable to a heap
memory information leak, where server allocated heap memory may be
returned to the client without being cleared.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
