[slackware-security] samba (SSA:2017-144-01)

New samba packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, 14.2,
and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/samba-4.4.14-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a remote code execution vulnerability, allowing a
malicious client to upload a shared library to a writable share, and
then cause the server to load and execute it.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab

to the Slackware project! :-)
