    Jann Horn had reported two vulnerabilities in Samba, a popular
    cross-platform network file and printer sharing suite. In particular,
    these vulnerabilities affect to SWAT, the Samba Web Administration Tool.
    
    CVE-2013-0213: Clickjacking issue in SWAT
        An attacker can integrate a SWAT page into a malicious web page via a
        frame or iframe and then overlaid by other content. If an 
        authenticated valid user interacts with this malicious web page, she 
        might perform unintended changes in the Samba settings.
    
    CVE-2013-0214: Potential Cross-site request forgery
        An attacker can persuade a valid SWAT user, who is logged in, to
        click in a malicious link and trigger arbitrary unintended changes in
        the Samba settings.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze9.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:3.6.6-5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:3.6.6-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
