    Debian Bug     : 
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and fixed in Samba, a SMB/CIFS
    file, print, and login server:
    
    CVE-2014-0178
    
        Information leak vulnerability in the VFS code, allowing an
        authenticated user to retrieve eight bytes of uninitialized memory
        when shadow copy is enabled.
    
    CVE-2014-0244
    
        Denial of service (infinite CPU loop) in the nmbd Netbios name
        service daemon. A malformed packet can cause the nmbd server to
        enter an infinite loop, preventing it to process later requests to
        the Netbios name service.
    
    CVE-2014-3493
    
        Denial of service (daemon crash) in the smbd file server daemon. An
        authenticated user attempting to read a Unicode path using a
        non-Unicode request can force the daemon to overwrite memory at an
        invalid address.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:3.6.6-6+deb7u4.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:4.1.9+dfsg-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:4.1.9+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
