    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Samba, a SMB/CIFS file,
    print, and login server for Unix. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2017-14746
    
        Yihan Lian and Zhibin Hu of Qihoo 360 GearTeam discovered a
        use-after-free vulnerability allowing a client to compromise a SMB
        server via malicious SMB1 requests.
    
    CVE-2017-15275
    
        Volker Lendecke of SerNet and the Samba team discovered that Samba
        is prone to a heap memory information leak, where server allocated
        heap memory may be returned to the client without being cleared.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 2:4.2.14+dfsg-0+deb8u9.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2:4.5.12+dfsg-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your samba packages.
