    Package        : samba
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-2619
    
    Jann Horn of Google discovered a time-of-check, time-of-use race
    condition in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix. A
    malicious client can take advantage of this flaw by exploting a symlink
    race to access areas of the server file system not exported under a
    share definition.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:4.5.6+dfsg-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
