    Two security issues were found in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and 
    login server:
    
    CVE-2013-4408
    
        It was discovered that multiple buffer overflows in the processing
        of DCE-RPC packets may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2013-4475
    
        Hemanth Thummala discovered that ACLs were not checked when opening
        files with alternate data streams. This issue is only exploitable
        if the VFS modules vfs_streams_depot and/or vfs_streams_xattr are
        used.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze11.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.6.6-6+deb7u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
