Description :

Updated samba packages fix security vulnerabilities :

An uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in the Samba daemon
(smbd). A malicious Samba client could send specially crafted netlogon
packets that, when processed by smbd, could potentially lead to
arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running smbd
(by default, the root user) (CVE-2015-0240).
