[slackware-security] samba (SSA:2018-072-02)

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

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/samba-4.4.16-i586-3_slack14.2.txz: Rebuilt.
This is a security update in order to patch the following defect:
On a Samba 4 AD DC the LDAP server in all versions of Samba from
4.0.0 onwards incorrectly validates permissions to modify passwords
over LDAP allowing authenticated users to change any other users`
passwords, including administrative users.
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! :-)
